To study in Canada: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/study/permit-who.html
I think you basically have to show that you can pay your way.

http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/skilled/assess/

"Skilled Worker Self-Assessment"
I got a 80, but I had to fudge my french ability (none) and I assumed I had a job offer of some kind.

you are serious right ?
I could reach 52...failed!

But that was teh first time I took the test. I didn't try teh second time but I guess I would be able to move up to 90 or so if some other tries were made...

well as a student you can ignore the Skilled Worker Self-Assessment test. I would apply to various canadian schools and ask the contact there how you can get fin aid (if you need it)

Its better to live in a cold place than in a hot one. I like cold cold place. When it gets cold, just wear a bunch of clothes and go out chilling with friends. In a hot country, you can not do something sillmillar like this.
Thanks kptr2 and tumor, Have yourselves a really funny and prosperous new year!
