    Canada requirements for international students

    Canada is now the most educated country in the world, according to a recent report by the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development. Most of all, there are a lot of programs for international students. 

    The universities of Canada don't use a centralized system of undergraduate application so the students have to apply separately for each institution they want to attend. However, the most general procedures and requirements to get admission in Canada are: an application form, an official high school transcript or university transcript, CV which present your educational achievements, work or volonteer experience, and a letter of intent (LOI) that demonstrate personal and professional goals of the student and explains the interest of the applicant.
