The Flexible Canadian Post-Secondary Education System Provides Students with Choice
In the Canadian post-secondary system, students do not have to choose between an academic education and a practical, experience-based one. They can have both thanks to the flexibility of the system and the cooperation not only of colleges, polytechnics, and universities but also of industry.
In many programs of study, it is possible for students to do research or complete a working co-op within the industry they wish to enter upon graduation. This is especially valuable for students seeking work in Canada after graduation and, possibly, to be permanent residents.
