The Manitoba Experience: With Manitoba’s low cost of living and booming economy, it’s no surprise that students from around the world come to study at Manitoba high schools, language schools, and universities. Manitoba offers an authentic Canadian educational experience away from the bustle of the larger metropolitan areas. The province boasts a diversity of flora and fauna; nearly 50% of the province’s land area is covered in forests. Iconic species such as polar bears are common in the northern region of the province.
Study in Manitoba: Manitoba offers a memorable study abroad experience for students of all levels. International students planning long-term studies in Manitoba will be pleased to hear that students receive free healthcare and can work in Canada after graduation on a postgraduate work permit (with extra perks such as tax rebates on tuition).
From the Ministry’s Office: “International students coming to Manitoba enjoy an authentic immersion experience and the opportunity to really learn the English language. The small class sizes facilitate a greater level of student-professor interaction. In addition, Manitoba offers many opportunities to engage in internships and co-op experiences off campus, thanks to the province’s diverse economy.”
