Canada is a favored destination by many as the country has a lot to offer in terms of diversity, culture and opportunities.
Each year, close to 2 lakh Indian students enter the country in hopes of a better education & future.

English happens to be the major language in Canada & being fluent in it is of utmost significance as it helps in establishing credibility.
Most of you are eagerly waiting to get there but are unsure of what the language proficiency requirements are.

Getting there requires a minimum of 5.5 band in one of the four IELTS band requirements – Writing, Listening, Speaking & Reading.

However, a minimum overall score of 6.5 and above is considered ideal as most courses demand a score of 6.5 or more.

If you wish to pursue something related to Engineering, Teaching and  Education Studies, you need a minimum overall score of 7.

This is the list of universities in Canada that accept a score of 6:

  • Concordia University
  • Fairleigh Dickinson University
  • University of Lethbridge
  • Vancouver Island University
  • Nipissing University
  • Saint Mary’s University
  • HEC Montreal
  • University Canada West
  • Kwantlen Polytechnic University
  • Charles Sturt University

As you know now that an overall band of 6 could guarantee you admission into certain universities in Canada but the higher your band score will be, the more will be your chances of getting enrolment.

Partnering with a registered Overseas Education Consultancy will eventually work in your favor. Such consultants have the expertise and the knowhow that is required for you to make a smooth move.

Canadian degree holders are at an advantage as compared to others as they are preferred globally in different fields.
You must target to secure an IELTS band of at least 7 or above in order to keep your options open. Doing well in the language proficiency test will be indicative of the fact that you are equipped to understand the medium of instruction in the country that you’re going to and will also be able to form healthy relationships with those around you.
