外研版高三年级:The Maple leaf Country


话题归类:世界与环境The world and the environment


FOR nine years (1994-2002), Canada has been among the top three places in the world to live, according to a United Nations survey.

The country also places great importance on learning, and has developed a first-rate education system with high standards. It has two official languages—English and French.

A Canadian degree, diploma or certificate is well-regarded in business, government and academic circles around the world.

Educational structure

The education system in Canada includes both public and private schools. There are community colleges, technical institutes, career colleges, language schools, secondary schools, summer schools and universities.

In general, children spend one or two years in kindergarten before starting grade 1 of primary school at the age of six.

After five or six years, they begin secondary school, which goes up to grade 11 or 12, depending on the province. The school year normally runs from September to June, although it is sometimes possible to join in January.

On graduating from school, students may attend university, college or do vocational education. It takes three to four years to finish a bachelor's degree.

Chinese high school students who want to apply for a degree course in Canada, should complete the equivalent of Canadian secondary or high school.

It is also necessary to have strong English language skills, with a TOEFL score of around 550 or about 6.0 for IELTS.

Getting your visa

Depending on the programme you are taking and the length of your study, you may need:

* A temporary resident visa

* A study permit

Study permits are required for programmes that last longer than six months.

When applying, try to remember the following:

* Make sure the programme or major you are applying for links with what you are learning in China.

* You must show proof that you want to return to China when you finish studying, rather than stay in Canada.

* You must prove that your parents or guardians can afford to pay for your future study.

Personal safety

Canada is considered to be a peaceful and safe country. Unlike the US, firearms are either not permitted or strictly controlled.

As the world's second largest country, Canada has many tourist destinations.

Wherever you choose to study, cultural, leisure, and other activities will never be far away.
