Are you ready to take the first step towards your future?
Here’s everything you need to know about studying as an International Student.
Studying from your Home Country
One of the most frequently asked questions is: “How will I finish this program from my home country without having to set foot in Canada?”.
This is exactly why Sunnybrook International Academy was established. Our programs are designed specifically for students to experience what it is like to be a Canadian student without physically being present in Canada.
Our curriculum comes straight from the Ministry of Education and provides students the opportunity to learn as much as they can. We have a guidance department & teachers 24x7 to ensure that students are prepared for their future studies in Canada. We meet with our international students on a regular basis to ensure that they are enjoying the program and to advise them on what the next steps are when applying to College or University.
The timeline for students can vary. However, we have created a standard timeline for those students looking to apply at the grade 12 level. Please see below.
• July – August: Register for your classes and pay your tuition fees
• September: Begin your courses
• November: Apply to universities/colleges
• January: At this point, you should have completed half of your course load
• April: Write the Ontario literacy exam
• April-June: Complete the remaining course load and ensure that you have your 40 hours of community service completed. You will start receiving acceptance letters for universities/colleges
• June: Graduate with the Ontario Secondary School Diploma and get ready to start university/college the following September.
Why study online from your home country?
There are many reasons to study online. Every student approaches school differently and learns at a different pace. Sunnybrook 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 are 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%.
