Benefits of LaSalle College Pathway Program for Students

Scheduled Study Plan in Canada

One of the primary advantages of pathway programs is the ability to have a scheduled study plan in place before even arriving in Canada. This pre-arrival planning is crucial for students, as it allows them to understand the academic journey ahead, including the courses they will take, the duration of their study, and any preparatory classes they need to complete.

Up to $7,000 Saving from the Tuition Fee

Financial benefits are a significant aspect of pathway programs, with students often able to save up to $7,000 on tuition fees. These savings can come from a variety of sources, such as scholarships exclusive to pathway program participants, reduced rates for certain preparatory courses, or credits that reduce the total number of courses needed to graduate.

Apply for Work Permit After Graduation in Canada

Pathway programs not only prepare students academically but also set the stage for future career opportunities in Canada. Graduates of these programs are eligible to apply for a Post-Graduation Work Permit (PGWP), allowing them to work in Canada for up to three years after their studies.
