Business schools use the test as a criterion for admission into graduate business administration programs throughout the world.

Studying and Living in Canada


It is always best to stay on campus. Not only are the basic amenities easily accessible but also on-campus life allows students to gradually integrate into the student community under the guidance of peers and staff. If on campus option is not available then one should look for the home-stays or rented accommodation. Home-stays provide family life and are usually cheaper than on campus accommodation. Depending on your location, home-stays usually cost 800-1,000 USD a month on single occupancy room basis, including meals. Students who decide to rent an apartment can also get valuable help from the university student association.


Some universities have their own credit union or other banking services. Before opening an account, find out which banks are near where you would live and study. It may be difficult to open an account from overseas, so take enough money with you to live on until you can open a US account and arrange for funds to be transferred from home.

Basic Essentials

Getting ready for different destination and living alone should be prepared with basic necessities. As a student you plan accordingly, prepare a list of things which you will need initially. Make sure your baggage should include seasonally and appropriate clothing, insurance documents, medical prescription back up supply and letter from doctor.

Home Comforts

It is a good idea to take a few small mementos of home with you photos of friends and family will brighten your room and remind you of what you're temporarily leaving behind. Ensure that you have the right clothes to battle the change of seasons.

Mobile Phones

When you first arrive, it is expected that you will be calling home frequently. It is essential to check your phone's compatibility with US mobile operators, as some phones don't work in the US. With diverse choices of handsets and monthly plans, you can enjoy variety in handsets, operators and competitive costs. Since most prepaid connections require a Social Security card, a prepaid connection is cost effective and a convenient alternative.

Internet & Email Access

Usually college campus is fully equipped with Wi-Fi. Students do get access in the college campus. But it's better to have a personal laptop. You can check out the details at your university's book store.
