Canada is a country located in the northern part of North America. Its ten provinces and three territories extend from the Atlantic to the Pacific and northward into the Arctic Ocean, covering 9.98 million square kilometres (3.85 million square miles), making it the world's second-largest country by total area.

In Canada, the degree structure is more flexible and mainly à la carte. Each course (or class) is assigned a certain number of credits. To complete their degree, students must have studied and validated a given number of credits. Each semester, students select courses from a wide selection offered by their department of studies. In doing so, they also get to choose their own workload: from two to six courses a semester in general. The more courses they study each semester, the more credits they validate and the quicker they graduate. As a consequence, students get to build a curriculum that is flexible and mirrors their personal interests.


Admissions are by application only. International students must show English proficiency. To do so, they have to take the IELTS or the TOEFL. Study Link Uganda holds various partnerships with institutions providing intensive preparation to both these exams.

Tuition Fees

Tuition fees in Canada are roughly equivalent to tuition fees in the UK. Some public institutions only charge around 5,000€ per year while others can charge up to 15,000€. Community colleges are a great way to save money. Students can complete their first two years of study in a community college where tuition fees are usually low before transferring to a prestigious university.
