Universities in Canada step up to the COVID-19 challenge
Posted on April 9, 2020
The education industry is changing for the better.
With the disruptions and restrictions on a global scale owing to the COVID-19 pandemic, many international universities have indeed stepped up to the challenge.
There has been much speculation among study for professionals aspirants regarding the effect of COVID-19 on Study Overseas for them. Nevertheless, COVID-19 special measures are not expected to impact the academic cycle as such.
While the universities might have to postpone or stall the Fall [August/September] 2020 intake, the business will be as usual for the Spring 2021 intake as well as the Fall 2021 intake.
The best time to apply for intake is six months before the intake deadline. This is applicable under normal circumstances as well. Hence, the ideal time to apply for the Spring 2021 intake is right now!
The application deadline for the Spring 2021 intake is June/July 2020. The lockdown period will also end by June/July 2020.
Indians planning on Migrating to Canada via the study route will have to keep in mind that with the universities deferring the Fall 2020 intake to Spring 2021, applying now is essential for beating the queue!
Similarly, now is the best time for working professionals, seeking to Migrate to Canada while studying, for reserving their seats for 2021.
Canada is open and encourages applicants to apply online.
With a view to COVID-19 special measures in various countries, international universities are being flexible. Documents are being accepted without attestations.
