Study Permits


If you wish to come to Canada to study, you will likely need a study permit to do so. Before you can apply for a study permit, an approved educational institution in Canada must first accept you. Armed with proof of your acceptance, you may apply for a study permit. To qualify for a study permit, there are various requirements you must meet and documentation you must submit. You will have to satisfy the visa officer that you have sufficient funds to pay your tuition and support yourself while in Canada. You will need to be in good health and may be required to undergo a medical examination. You must also be a law-abiding citizen and not a security risk to Canada. A visa officer must also be satisfied that you will leave Canada after your authorized period of study.
