Things to consider before getting admission.

  • Who needs a study permit: Individual who intends to study a course of duration more than six months need a study permit. Individuals intending to study in courses for less than six months can study on legal status such as visitor or work permit.  

 

  • DLI – Designated learning Institutes: In Canada, each province and territory oversee their own education system. Provinces and territories approve (or “designate”) schools that can enrol international students. These schools are known as designated learning institutions (DLI). For getting a Study permit your acceptance letter must be from a DLI, if it is not, the application will be refused.
  •  
    • How to apply to school college or University: Once you choose a school, college, or university, you must contact the school where you want to study to learn how to apply. They will give you the list of all the documents you need to send them. Make sure you apply at least: six months in advance if you want to study at a primary (Grade 1-8) or secondary school (Grade 9-12), or a year in advance for a post-secondary program your school will be able to tell you about the cost to apply, tuition fees, health insurance, rent and how much it costs to live in Canada, language tests. If the school admits you as a student, they will send you a letter of acceptance. You need this letter to apply for a study permit.
