Study in Canada


Millions of applicants from all over the world hope to be admitted into one of Canada’s schools or universities and receive a study visa. For many overseas students, studying in Canada is an exciting and fulfilling experience. After you’ve determined what you want to study, you should think about admission dates, application deadlines, student visa processing timelines, and English language requirements. In addition to BA, MBA, PhD, certificate, and diploma programmes, Canadian colleges and universities provide a wide range of short-term summer language courses, continuing education, and exchange programmes. Every year, the primary intake occurs in September, while many colleges and universities offer a smaller intake in January or summer term. To study in Canada, most foreign nationals need a study permit.

If your course is less than six months in length, you will simply require a visiting visa to enter Canada. If you intend to study for more than six months, you must apply for a student visa. To apply for a study visa, you must first receive an acceptance letter from the educational institution. Although Canada has over 98 universities and colleges, the institution of your choosing must be licenced by a provincial or territorial government to accept international students. This is the first thing you should look at if you want to apply to college or university.

How Do I Get a Study Permit in Canada?

Canada’s education system is widely regarded as one of the best in the world. International students from all over the world choose Canada for higher education. It is cheap to study in Canada. Tuition fees in Canada are typically lower than those in Australia, the United States, and the United Kingdom.

If you want to study in Canada, you must first obtain a Letter of Acceptance from a Designated Learning Institute (DLI) to apply for a Study Permit.

Apply for a Study Permit

The study permit permits a person to study at a Designated Learning Institution (DLI) in Canada. A foreign national should be aware of the eligibility requirements that must be met when submitting a study permit application when applying for one.

There are several steps to applying for a study permit, and processing times vary by country. It is best to plan ahead of time to ensure that your permit is processed before the start of your study period. The majority of Canadian postsecondary educational programmes begin in September, January, or May.

A foreign national cannot apply for a study permit unless they have obtained an acceptance letter. Foreign nationals should check the start date and application process for their academic programs of interest well in advance; to ensure they have enough time to obtain the acceptance letter and complete the study permit application.

Deadlines for applications

When compared to students applying from within Canada, Canadian schools have different application deadlines for international students. Make sure you are aware of your program’s deadline!

Requirements for Study Permits

When applying for a Canadian study permit, you must consider two sets of requirements: eligibility requirements and requirements while studying in Canada.

Eligibility Requirements

Acceptance Letter: In order to apply for a Canadian study permit, you must have a Letter of Acceptance from a Designated Learning Institution (DLI) in Canada.

Proof of Financial Support: You must provide documentation demonstrating that you have sufficient funds to cover the cost of tuition and living expenses for yourself and any accompanying family members during your first year of study. Please keep in mind that these funds could be in your name or the name of a family member.

Documentation Support: All study permit applications must include extensive supporting documentation.

This documentation differs from one country to the other. You can visit the IRCC website or contact our firm and one of our Immigration consultants will assist you in determining the documents required for a particular location.

The visa officer will check to see if you meet the requirements when you apply for your permit. If the visa officer is not satisfied, your application will be rejected.

To study in Canada an applicant must have:

  •  Proof of funds for tuition and living expenses and travel expenses for the applicant and any accompanying family members

The Application Procedure

  • Determine Eligibility: Check that you meet the requirements for a Canadian study permit. You will need a Letter of Acceptance from a DLI, proof of financial support, and a variety of other documents, which will vary depending on your country of citizenship and residence.
  • Prepare your application : If you meet all of the eligibility requirements, you can start working on your study permit application. Ensure that you have collected all documentation needed for your country. Immigration officers have the right to deny study permits if they believe an applicant has not met all requirements, so having a licenced and experienced Immigration Consultant review your application prior to submission is extremely important.
  • Submit your application for a study permit: You have two options for submitting your application: Send in your electronic application: Create an account on the Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) website and submit an application using scanned or electronic copies of documents. Send in a paper application: Compile your application on paper and mail it to the Visa Application Centre (VAC) for your country.
  • If your study permit is approved, you will be notified to submit your passport for stamping: When you arrive at a Canadian port of entry(POE), you will be given your study permit . Please keep in mind that your study permit does not constitute a visa. This means that, depending on your citizenship, you may require a travel visa to enter the country.
