Study Permit

Study Permit

Canada is home to about half a million students from across the globe. The demand for Canada as a study hub is increasing by the day, purely due to its world-class education system. Most of the diploma and degree programs allow the students to work part-time. This exposes them to the Canadian job market, thus giving their careers a boost and increasing their prospects of living permanently. The post-graduation work permit and other types of work permits allow students to work temporarily and gradually transition to becoming permanent residents.

The Student Direct Stream allows for faster processing for residents living in India, Pakistan, Brazil, China, Antigua and Barbuda, Costa Rica, Morocco, Peru, Colombia, Philippines, Senegal, Vietnam, Trinidad and Tobago, and Saint Vincent and Grenadines. Students living elsewhere in the world need to apply through the Regular Study Permit process.

The first step towards obtaining a Canadian study visa is to secure a letter of acceptance from a Designated Learning Institute. The student also needs to prove that they can support themself and other accompanying family members, while they are in Canada. Apart from these requisite documents, a student may also need to provide a letter of explanation and other documents, as may be required by the visa officer.

Study Permit and Student Visa

Students must apply for a study permit visa if they want to continue their higher studies in Mississauga, Canada for more than 6 months from a designated learning institution. Candidates can continue their studies without any permit if the duration is less than 6 months. Remember that a student visa and a study permit are two different documents. A student visa allows students to enter Canada, but a study permit allows them to stay in Canada to complete their studies. Students with their study permits are allowed to work part-time for 20 hours during their studies.
