Every year, tens of thousands of international students choose Canada as their study destination. Canada’s extremely high standards of living and education are the main cause of this. With a diploma from a Canadian university, you can easily get a job almost anywhere in the world.
But before you can fulfill your goals, you need to apply for a study permit in Canada. Let’s look at how you can obtain this authorization.
Choose the Subject You Will Study
You must first be accepted into a higher education program in order to obtain a study permit in Canada. To do this, you should decide on your professional objectives and make a list of the schools you want to apply to that fit these objectives. Different application requirements apply to different higher education institutions in Canada. To learn more about these requirements, conduct some online study.
Acceptance letter (LOA)
You will receive a letter of acceptance upon the approval of your application by a higher education institution (LOA). This letter of acceptance allows you to apply for a Canadian study permit and subsequently enroll in school. The name of the higher education institution, your name, date of birth, postal address, the name of the program you have been accepted to, the length of the program you have been accepted for, and the duration of the acceptance letter’s validity period are all included in this letter.
Study Permit Application
After receiving a letter of acceptance, you can apply for a study permit to the Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada. While is not mandatory to engage professional services of Regulated Canadian Immigration Consultant or a Canadian Lawyer, we strongly recommend working with trusted professionals such as an immigration consultant or a lawyer.
Study permit is a type of temporary resident application that visa officers have discretionary decision-making power. Most of the refusals are based on these grey areas that the applicant’s responsibility to satisfy the visa officer. Some of common refusal reasons are:
- Not being a genuine student
- Not having enough family ties to your home country that you will be returning
- Employment opportunities at your home country
- Your financial ability to pay tuition fee and living expenses while you are in Canada
- Unable to explain how you will benefit studying in Canada
Therefore, we cannot emphasize enough importance of working with a professional to make sure that your application is complete and well prepared.
