Courses are the separate components that make up programmes of study. For instance, students who study commerce might be required to take courses in economics, accounting, and entrepreneurship. Depending on their specific areas of study, individuals in the same programme may be required to take various courses. 


The majority of courses in Canada are for around 12 weeks and are made up of a schedule of weekly lectures, tests, and individual coursework in a particular topic area. When a student successfully completes the prerequisites for a particular course, the school will give them "credit" toward finishing their degree programme. A study programme is finished when there are enough credits earned to satisfy the program's criteria. For instance, a bachelor's degree in Canada typically consists of 120 credits, with three credits added for each course successfully completed.


In Canada, the academic year is divided into terms, often known as semesters. The semester or trimester system, in which the year is divided into two equal-length semesters or three equal-length semesters, is used in the majority of Canadian schools. Students should be aware that the Canadian academic year begins in September for practical purposes.

A prospective student can start looking for the best institution once they have chosen their course of study.


It's vital to remember that choosing a field of study before looking at institutions is not required. In addition to academic programmes, there are other significant criteria that influence the choice of an institution. A prospective student might decide on a school based on its standing, location, extracurricular options, or price. Many academic programmes allow students to choose their primary field of study or area of concentration later on. This is especially true for bachelor's degree programmes, where students may be obliged to choose a major and a minor study focus in their second year.


Prospective students should be aware that not knowing their field of expertise will not prevent them from studying in Canada. While enrolling in a programme that is ultimately not a good fit could be a costly mistake (both financially and in terms of time), many study programmes allow students to change their study plans or set up multidisciplinary programmes.
