Do I need a study permit to study at a Canadian educational institution?

Canadian colleges, universities, technical institutes and other educational institutions encourage applications from qualified international students. If you are going to study in Canada for more than six (6) months, you need a study permit. Applicants going to study in any field in Canada for six (6) months or less do not require a Study Permit and can be apply for visitor visas. However, this applies only if the full course will be completed in six six months or less. You cannot go to Canada on a visitor visa and study the first six months of a longer course without a study permit and then obtain a permit later.

If you intend to study in the province of Quebec, you also need a Certificate of Acceptance (CAQ) from the Quebec government.

Applicants who would like to pick up their passports outside of the regular pick up times following the first day their passport has been made available for release can do so.

If an interview is required, these will be scheduled in advance at a time convenient to applicants so they will no longer stand in line outside the High Commission or Consulate General.

Applications submitted by mail take a minimum of two weeks from the time an application is received in our office to process.

Please note that processing times vary from case to case, often due to reasons beyond our control. Some cases will take longer than the times indicated above.

Note: VFS is responsible only for accepting applications and providing advice and guidance where necessary. All visa applications will continue to be assessed by visa officers at the Canadian High Commission in New Delhi or at the Canadian Consulate General in Chandigarh.

What are the basic requirements for a Study Permit?

All applicants wishing to study in Canada please contact [email protected]

What documents should I provide to obtain a Study Permit?

http://www.vfs-canada.co.in/visaapplication.html#2

Do I need to take an IELTS test?

It is strongly recommended that you take an IELTS test if you intend to study in English. You will need to satisfy a visa officer that you will observe the conditions of your admission to Canada and will depart Canada at the end of the period authorized for your stay. A proven and verifiable ability to communicate in the language of your studies will assist the officer in making that determination.

When should I apply?

It is very strongly recommended that you apply at least two months before the start of your studies. If you do not, you may miss the registration date specified on your letter of acceptance. A study permit will not be issued to you if you do not have a valid letter of acceptance when a final decision is made on your application.

You should apply as early as possible once you receive your acceptance letter. Please note that medical examinations are usually required for students from India and Nepal. This adds a minimum of two weeks to the processing of your application.

Please note that if you do not submit your application properly, or do not submit the correct documents, the processing time will be longer. Applicants who do not provide the required documents may be refused without an interview.

How much money will I need during my studies in Canada?

If you will not receive funding from a Canadian educational institution or a governmental organization, you will be required to provide evidence that you or your family can readily afford the cost of an education in Canada on an ongoing basis. You must demonstrate that you will have enough money during your stay in Canada to pay for tuition fees, books, living expenses for yourself and any accompanying dependents, and return transportation for both yourself and your dependents.

According to Citizenship and Immigration Canada guidelines, you will require approximately $10 000 Canadian per year, not including tuition fees, to cover your living expenses. If your dependants are planning to accompany or join you, you will require an additional $4 000 for the first dependant, and $3 000 for each subsequent dependant, in addition to return airfare.

Can my spouse and child come with me to Canada, or visit me at a later date?

If you proceed to Canada alone, it is possible that your dependants will not be able to join you there. If you wish your spouse and / or child to accompany you to Canada or to join you at a later date, you must provide proof that you will be able to support them. Please see the response to Question 9 above.

Since funding provided by Canadian institutions or governmental organizations is normally sufficient for one person only, you will likely be required to provide proof of additional funding and/ or savings. Your dependants will also be required to demonstrate to a visa officer that they have sufficient ties to India to ensure their departure from Canada.

Can I work while I am in school?

You are allowed to work on campus if you are pursuing full time studies and are in possession of a valid Study Permit. Otherwise, you will need permission from an immigration office to work while studying in Canada.

If I have a study permit, can I stay permanently in Canada?

Study Permits are issued for the sole, temporary purpose of authorizing your studies in Canada. If you are applying for a study permit primarily in order to get into Canada to obtain permanent residence, to work, or for any other purpose other than studying, it is very likely that your application will be refused.

If you have already arrived in Canada and do not attend an academic institution, removal procedures will be initiated against you.

If my application is refused, will the High Commission help me to get back money paid to the school in Canada?

No. The Visa Section is not able to assist with the refund of school fees.

My application was refused. What can I do about it?

Written reasons for the refusal are given to unsuccessful Study Permit applicants. Once you are in possession of the written reasons, there are limited avenues for appeal. There is no formal appeal mechanism for refused Study Permit applications.

The Visa Section is not able to assist with the refund of school fees.

If your circumstances have changed appreciably and you believe that it would result in a different decision, you may wish to reapply. If, however, there is no change in your situation, then it is unlikely that your application would result in the issuance of a Study Permit.

International students interested in studying in Canada should ensure that they are familiar with the rules and processes involved in coming to Canada to study. The best and most accurate source for information is the Canadian federal government. The federal government runs Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) – which links immigration services with citizenship registration and is responsible for and admitting immigrant, foreign students, visitors and temporary workers.

Contact NovaEdu to apply again for the Visa.

The department of the federal government formerly known as International Trade Canada has been split into two separate departments. The department now responsible for Culture, Education and Youth is Foreign Affairs Canada (FAC).
