Study in Canada – Upcoming Intakes from Chandigarh of 2022-23

For acquiring higher education, Canada has been one of the top destinations for students who are looking for a study visa for Canada. For the international students who want to pursue Undergraduate, Postgraduate, and Research degrees in Canada, making an application at the right time is very crucial. Admission to various Colleges and Universities in Canada is during specified times, termed as Intakes. The different intakes are FALL Intake, WINTER Intake, and SUMMER/ SPRING Intake.

FALL Intake: This intake also known as September Intake is the primary and the most preferred intake in Canada. Most of the universities offer a large number of courses this semester.

The window for applying during this intake opens in the month of December and remains open till March, for the program to begin in September.

Students joining this intake are four to five months ahead of those who take admission in Winter Intake. The weather this semester is more pleasant as compared to the winter semester.

Students can have a lot of internship and scholarship opportunities.
