Graduate School at American versus Canadian Universities: Does it make a Difference?

Students sometimes wonder how the quality of graduate training compares between the U.S. and Canada. The assumption seems to be that there are significant differences, but the truth is that there are really no differences between the U.S. and Canada in terms of the quality of graduate training available. This is true in nearly all disciplines.

Graduate programs are designed in the same ways in the U.S. and Canada. The range of quality is the same. In fact, there is more variation among different schools within either country than there is between the two countries. Some of the private schools in the U.S., where tuitions are very high, would like everyone to believe that they offer better graduate training than what is available in the public universities, but that is not necessarily true.

The best way to choose the right graduate school is not based on geographical location, but rather on your particular career objectives.
