Canada is the dream destination for several international students across the world. Top colleges, technical institutions, universities, and more make Canada the place to go for higher education. Every year, over 130,000 students come to Canada to study and to gain international experience.

The first step towards studying in Canada is to apply for a study permit.

Study permits allow students to reside in Canada for the duration of their studies. During this time, depending on the kind of visa, students may qualify to work up to 20 hours per week during semesters and full-time during semester breaks.

Completing and submitting a student visa application by oneself can be a daunting and challenging task. A clause overlooked could cost you the chance to study at your dream school.

Three things every student must know before applying for a Canadian Study Permit:

  • To apply for a study permit, an applicant must have been accepted by a Canadian college, technical institute, and university.
  • Applicants must demonstrate that they have adequate funds to pay tuition, living expenses, return transportation, etc.
  • It is important to apply for the study permit as soon as applicants receive their acceptance letter to ensure that there is no delay in starting the academic program.
