    Hi, I'm 16 and expecting my GCSE results on the 25th August 2016, I'm interested in Pharmacy or Dentistry. I have been to Canada twice, and the most recent time I stayed for 8 weeks and I much prefer it to England.I do not like England, but I enjoy Canada as most of my family is there.I am planning on doing my A levels in England and then possibly study dentistry in Canada (Vancouver) to be exact. Once I complete university I would like to live in Canada anyway.Question 1, What would I need to do to move to Canada?Question 2, How would I apply to university in Canada, how would my A -Level results work in application?Question 3, would it be better to apply to a UK university and apply for a exchange programme to a Canadian University?Thank You.

    Hi, I've moved your post to a more appropriate forum. Also have you researched how you can pay the tuition fees and living costs in Canada.

    Sorry but I've no idea... do any of the universities you are considering mention A-levels?

    Also have a look at

    As I said, check with the universities. You would have to do the same checks if you were applying to a UK university.

    Canadian universities seem to be pretty easy to get in to, from what I've seen.

    My friend's going to Waterloo (probably the best Canadian uni for Electrical Engineering [his course]) and he only needs AABB

    I'm not sure what the reqs are for those 2 courses, but I know UBC is about the same, if not easier than Waterloo, to get accepted at
