Advantages, Features, Requirements and Admission Process for a Master’s Degree in Canada
A Master’s degree is the next step of education in Canada, for which a Bachelor’s degree is required to start. They can only be earned at universities, however colleges offer post-graduate programs that are comparable to a speciality in a specific field of study. A Master’s degree is typically required for licensed professions in Canada, and usually consists of more in-depth study of the chosen field. This includes research and innovation projects, and preparing students for potentially teaching and further contributing to the research in the field of study.

Types of Master's Degree

The content and process of admission depends on the type of Master’s degree:
1

Course based

The structure of the program is pre-defined and does not require any additional decisions from the student
2
Thesis based
As a prerequisite, a student must declare a research interest, as well as prior consent from a supervisor to conduct the work of the student’s thesis.
3
Project based
Consists of a mandatory number of courses, as well as a culminating graduation project.

Who is a Canadian Master's Degree Not Suitable for?

A Master's degree is not necessary for employees in fields where:
Practical experience in projects and number of publications are valued more (eg construction, communication, information technology, journalism)
Professional accreditation is appreciated for professional advancement (accounting, financial analysis, actuarial sciences)

If you view yourself as a teacher or a researcher, then a Master’s degree might be for you. However, it is important to consider the time, effort, and financial investment necessary to obtain a Master’s, and whether or not it is worth it compared to the demand for such a degree in Canada.

Features of Master's Degree in Canada

Obtaining a master’s degree in Canada takes approximately 2 years to complete. Since international students are required to only study full-time under the terms of a student visa, there is no part-time option available for a Master’s degree. A Master’s degree in Canada comes at a cost. Although it is possible to apply for scholarships to assist with funding, full funding for the program is very rare, especially for international students.
Most Master’s programs in other countries are based on a predetermined set of courses and graduate work. In Canada, Master’s programs are largely research and thesis based, with certain programs requiring a specific set of courses.
In Canada, graduate students are often not admitted immediately after completing their bachelor’s degree. Universities will also likely ask for confirmation of practical experience, as well as recommendations that the student may have earned after finishing their Bachelor’s program.
Some faculties will allocate a limited number of locations for international students to complete their programs. This may be due to a high demand coming from domestic students, or perhaps simply a highly competitive field.

Benefits of a Master's Degree in Canada

A Master’s degree counts for an additional 30 points, instead of the 15 provided by after-graduate programs, for the purposes of applying for permanent residency status.
Some provinces of Canada have special immigration programs for undergraduates and doctors
Approval of a student visa application is more likely, which is especially important for applicants over the age of 25
More Scholarship Options than Postgraduate College Programs

Canadian Master’s Degree admission process

Since most graduate programs only start in September, the application deadline is often in February. It is necessary to start the process of admission to the Master’s program at least a year before the start of the program.
