A wider selection of programs is available outside Canada. A selected list of some schools in the U.S. and U.K. is below.

Immigration requirements and high tuition and living expenses are a concern for students applying to American programs. "Fortunately, these costs are no less prohibitive for American students, so many institutions offer generous financial aid packages that include tuition and living expenses. Financial aid is generally a necessity for foreign students in the U.S., since they are not allowed to work off-campus to supplement their income. The bottom line is that there is a lot of scholarship money out there and it is definitely worth applying for."

"Most American schools also require applicants to take the GRE, a test that is now more widely available across Canada since it has become computerized." A good test result is helpful for Canadian students.... Departments may not have a sense of what your grades mean... but the GRE is considered more of an objective result and gives you a chance to compete with Ivy League grads they might also be considering."
