International Students

Canadian Higher Learning Academy has created programs to cater to all walks of life. Read more about what we have to offer our international students.

What are international students?

International students are students who currently do not hold Canadian Citizenship or Permanent Residence. International students range from any age and any location. International students have the advantage of achieving Canadian education from their home country, on a full-time or part-time basis.

Why study online?

There are many reasons to study online. Every student approaches school differently and learns at a different pace. CHLA was created with that in mind. Here are a variety of scenarios that we would consider for a student(s) who could benefit from studying online:
1. Students who want to receive international education recognition.
2. Students who plan on studying in Canada for any post-secondary schooling.
3. Students who plan on immigration and settling in Canada.
4. Students who plan on working in Canada.
5. Students who want a customized learning plan tailored to their areas of strengths and weaknesses.
6. Students who want a better understanding of their courses with a visually intuitive learning system.
7. Students who want personalized attention from one-on-one live classes with a real-life teacher.
8. Students who want the flexibility to learn from anywhere and at any time.

Importance of Canadian education

Unlike other western counterparts, Canada offers high quality education that is globally recognized at a comparatively less expensive rate. Canada’s high academic standards is one of the reasons international students study in Canada. In Canada, education is typically seen as an investment that will lead to future benefits for both the individual and society. One of these benefits is increased employability. Higher levels of education are often associated with higher employment rates.

There is a strong relationship between income and education, as high-income Canadians tend to be highly educated. Over two thirds (67.1%) of the top 1% have attained a university degree. In contrast, one in ten of those who had a post-secondary certificate or diploma below a bachelor’s degree made it into the top 10%.

ESL programs

CHLA has ESL courses that are exclusive to international students. ESL (English as a Second Language) courses will help you strengthen your current understanding of English to help you be on par with Canadian students.
