Why study online?
More international students choose to study at postsecondary institutions in Ontario than any other place in the world. With a growing number of online programs available, many international students are choosing to study fully online.
Online programs come with many advantages, including:
- the freedom to study from anywhere
- the flexibility to study synchronously (on a set schedule) or asynchronously (on your own time)
- lower costs, with no need to pay for travel, housing or living expenses in Canada
- an easier process, since you don’t have to apply for a permit or visa
After starting or completing your online program, you still have the option to pursue in-person studies in Ontario. Learn more about international student permits and visas.
However you choose to learn, we’re excited to welcome you to the world’s favourite classroom.
