Do you have students that want to gain international experience?
Broaden their horizons with option of obtaining a degree abroad
Foreign universities offer outstanding post-secondary choices for Canadian students. While international destinations are very appealing and the academic opportunities are excellent, students, advisors and parents are not always familiar with how to access the right information and assistance to consider studying in another country.
This page is designed to give you the tools needed to increase your knowledge about degree programs and the education system in other countries and to provide a streamlined application resource for you and your students.

From start to finish, we provide Canadian students with free support and enrollment assistance in any field of study.

Studying in Australia and New Zealand
1. Systems of Education
The Australian and New Zealand systems of education are based on the British System. Students can enter most professional degree areas such as Law, Medicine, Psychology, etc. directly from Secondary School. In addition, most Bachelor Degrees are 3 years duration, with the exception of many of the professional degrees.
Entry requirements vary according to the program and university. Entry is based on Year 12 results and the requirements for a general degree can be around 65-70% average and much higher for more specialized programs. International Baccalaureate and Advanced Placement results are also recognized.
2. How to Begin
Students need to create their own MyLearn profile on the Degrees Overseas website. This will provide a Log-in facility for students to save any program searches they do in their own ‘filing cabinet’. They can use this resource to compare programs and universities which will help them select the right program for their future career goals.

The choices available for Bachelor Degrees are vast and varied. Use our Degree Finder on the Degrees Overseas website to source programs of interest and the universities that offer them.
