Advantages for Mexican Students
Students from Mexico who choose to study vocational careers in Canadian Colleges can enjoy various benefits under the country’s law for foreign students. For example, they can pursue a vocational course, diploma, or master’s degree lasting at least two years, and obtain benefits such as part-time work during full-time vacations. At the end of their studies, they can work for up to three years and apply for permanent residency. This gives them a huge competitive edge for professional training in Canada and the potential of eventual permanent residence that includes their spouses and children.
Record Number of Mexican Students Expected by 2023
Bruno Perrón, President of CLASS Education, anticipates an unprecedented growth of Mexican students who dream of studying, living, and emigrating to Canada. This year, Canada is registering a robust growth of students, combining with Mexico’s dream to live in an inclusive country with high education and life quality standards.
