Default Need help in choosing right University

Hi Folks,

Happy New Year belated wishes to all

I am interested in pursuing my Dental career in Canada hence I approached many consultancies which did not give me right advice. As you might know they all propose the Uni's which would give them Good Commission or perks from their perspective. Please suggest the right path to pursue my interest. I have done my BDS and practicing in a clinic for the past 18 months ever since I graduated. I am taking IELTS on Feb 11th fingers crossed. I was looking to see if I can get a list of Public Universities which offer two years program that's Dental related so that I can go through the content and select the appropriate one for myself. Any guidance or suggestions are highly appreciated.

Also thanks a ton in advance

How do you know they didn't give you the right advice?

This is completely false and you shouldn't make statements like this when you have no idea what you are talking about.

I have worked in academia in Canada for more than a decade, both in administration and as a professor at both the university and college levels, and I can assure you that no university or college here gives consultants commissions or perks for anything. Corruption might be rife in India but that is not the case in Canada.

Research the schools you are interested in and apply. Pretty simple really.

That means virtually nothing here. You will have to qualify to practice in Canada.

And you would need to check that your education is up to Canadian standards. If it isn't, you will need to upgrade your education (Bachelor's) before applying to dental school here (and admission would not be guaranteed). If your education is considered equivalent to a Canadian education you would need to go through the qualifying process for internationally trained dentists which involves at least two years of dental school prior to sitting national qualifying exams.

You should also keep in mind that we have a glut of dentists here in Canada which will affect employment opportunities for newly qualified dentists.

Try Google. It should take about five seconds to find a list of dental schools in Canada.

And dentistry is a not a two year program, it is a four year program. Internationally trained dentists might qualify to enter the third year of dental school, but that will depend on whether or not their education is deemed up to Canadian standards.

FYI:

As competition for international students heats up, Canadian universities are taking a page from the playbook of their counterparts in Australia and Britain and increasingly turning to paid, foreign-based recruiters to attract students.
The use of education agents, or recruiters, is widespread and growing in Canada, where they are used by public school boards, language schools, colleges and universities, according to a report prepared for the Council of Ministers of Education, Canada.

Using an agent can be a cost-effective and low-risk way for institutions to tap into new markets,

Using agents is one thing, giving them kickbacks as was insinuated in the OP, is another thing entirely.
