Applying for a Canadian study permit:

Two of the most important factors in a study permit application is financial support and having an acceptance letter from a Canadian learning institution.

Most of the post-secondary institutions in Canada, require the student to have written an IELTS exam and received a high score. However, there are several institutions that provide you with a conditional letter of acceptance if you don’t have IELTS and require you to complete their English courses prior to starting your program of study.

For a study permit application, you are required to provide documents showing your financial support and academic qualifications, and to attend an interview or biometric test, which includes a digital scan of your fingerprints. Depending on your country of origin, you may also be required to have certain medical vaccinations or undertake a tuberculosis test.

Make sure to check the average visa processing times for your country and apply early!
