Study abroad: Choose CES or financial proof?

CES Canada has recently become a familiar keyword in the search for opportunities to study in Canada of young people in Vietnam. With open policies, reduced procedural pressures and time to complete, CES is making it easier than ever to study in Canada.

As of March 1, 2016, the Canadian Government, along with the Association of Colleges and Institutes of Canada, has adopted the Canada Express Study (CES). This is a program that minimizes financial proof and promotes the visa issuance process for Vietnamese students wishing to study in Canada. The 45 schools in the CES are members of the Canadian Association of Colleges and Schools. CES has an 18-month pilot period, but as a result of the program, the Consulate General of Canada has extended the program for a further year.

The advantages of the CES program are: faster financial identification, priority for visas for member schools, faster visa processing time.

At present, UE receives many inquiries from students who intend to study in Canada on the difference between CES and traditional programs. The following article will help you have the basic information about these two programs and choose the most appropriate way.
