International students are expected to start preparing for their studies in Canada 1 year in advance. The major intake for Canada primarily is ‘Fall’ i.e. September. The other intake is in the month of ‘Winter’ i.e. January, but it depends on the student’s program and the institution that he/she is applying to. Very few institutes might have the May intake as well.

∆ Health insurance:
The Government of Canada does not pay for the medical costs of foreign students. Health coverage for foreign students varies between provinces. Contact the Axiom to receive more information about medical coverage and health insurance.
We focus on helping students reach their full potential and succeed in their chosen career paths even after they graduate. Students who study abroad are often afraid that they may not be able to pick up the language, get around the town easily, or adapt to the learning setting they are placed in.
