5. Canada

Canada is a richly diverse multicultural society that is one of the most popular destinations for international students.  Canada is listed among the top 10 safest countries in the world to visit, and one of the highest standards of living. There are around 100 universities in Canada including many that are ranked among the best in the world. The prestigious degrees from these universities at a comparatively lower cost of study make Canada one of the best options for international students. Canada's educational system is a global leader in computer and information technologies, and has a reputation for excellence in such sectors as telecommunications, transportation, and engineering.

Canadian degrees, certificates, and diplomas are equally regarded to those in the U.S. and other Commonwealth countries. The variety of degree programs in Canada is vast with everything from humanities to technology and health and some very specialized environmental programs. The quality of Canadian universities rivals that of the U.S. and the U.K., while the costs of tuition and living are significantly lower.
