Studying in Canada, what you should know
For over a decade now, some Cameroonians have fallen prey to unscrupulous agents known for extorting huge sums of money from persons seeking admission into Canadian institutions.
To avoid such regrettable situations the , Mr. Richard Bile says aspirants should take advantage of Canada’s transparent educational system.
” Persons interested in studying in Canada do not necessarily need work with agents. Our system is known for being very transparent and fair . All the application forms are available on the internet for free, and there is no necessity to work with an agent. But if you choose to use an agent, then be very careful, and make your assessment of the agent you choose to work with”.
The authorities however stress that the safest, and most credible source of information for Camerooninans seeking a place in Canadian institutions is the EduCanada website.
