Study Permit in Canada
Canada continues to be a popular destination for students from all over the world. In order to study in Canada, students need to obtain a Study Permit – a document issued by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC), enabling international students to pursue their education at Designated Learning Institutions (DLIs) in Canada. For most foreign nationals, obtaining a study permit is essential for studying in Canada. This document contains information regarding your purpose of stay, potential work limitations, the rationale behind your choice to study in Canada, and the course level. You have to apply for the study permit from outside of Canada. In some cases, people can also apply from within the nation and in some cases, you may apply at the port upon entry.
Document Checklist and Study Permit Process
You’ll need the below-mentioned documents to apply for the study permit:
- Acceptance letter from DLI
- Proof of identity
- Proof of financial support
01 Select a Program
Choosing the right program is a crucial aspect of your study permit application. It is essential to build a strong case for studying in Canada in your chosen program. We provide program recommendations based on your educational background and work experience. This will increase your likelihood of submitting a successful application.
02 Plan for the English Language Test
Plan for the English Language Proficiency test such as IELTS/CELPIP and so on depending on the necessities of the college or school you wish to attend. Register for these tests ahead of time, as colleges and universities take time to process the admissions.
03 Apply to the School
The next step is choosing a particular college or university and courses per your interest and preference. You have to arrange enough money to cover the first year of study costs and living expenses for the first year. This will be converted to a GIC at the time of visa application. You need a letter of acceptance from a Canadian designated learning institution (DLI) before you can apply for a study permit.
