Steps to Apply for a Study Permit

Posted in Study Permit Canada

Apply for a Study Permit

  • You must have already secured an admission from a Canadian educational institution. Before you start the visa procedures the first step to study in Canada is to apply to a university or an educational institution
  • These educational institutions can be schools, colleges, vocational training centres or universities
  • After you receive a letter of acceptance from any of the above mentioned institutions you can start your visa proceedings
  • To study in Canada a student needs a document issued by the Canadian government known as the student permit. For most long term courses in Canada, a student permit is essential

When you submit an application for a student permit the government will evaluate your application against certain regulations. What are these rules?

  • The main requirement concerns your finances. You would need to furnish proof that you have adequate finances to cover the fees charged by your college or university. Also, you will need to proof that you can financially take care of yourself during your stay in Canada
  • You would need to prove that you will have adequate resources to fund your other expenses. If your family (this could be your spouse or your children) is coming with you than you would have to prove that you will be able to provide for them as well
  • Those students who wish to study courses of short duration (6 months) will not need a study permit. But after you finish you six month studies and you wish to stay back in Canada, you will have to apply again.
  • Good universities and colleges are not the only attractions that make Canada popular with students. Students can also work while they are pursuing their studies. For a student from a different country to work in Canada, there is no need for a wok permit in the following cases
  • The student must be in possession of a study permit
  • Sometimes educational institutions themselves employ students in part time jobs. For this a student do not need a work permit.

The information about courses that are available and courses that have funding is a lot. So if you feel a little lost, you can take the help of our experienced firm.

Studying in Canada is attractive for another reason. Once you secure a degree form a Canadian institution it greatly enhances your chances in immigrating to Canada later. When you are a student you would be a temporary resident. However if you play your cards right, you can successfully become a permanent resident in Canada.

  1. While you are Canada perfect your English skills. If you are familiar with French do the same with French.
  2. Try to acquire some work experience. Remember you can work on campus with your study permit. Use it secure a part time job as a skilled worker.

    Shabnam, I wanted to personally thank you for all your hard work and dedication to me and my wife. Our new lives together are all thanks to you. Considering the unique circumstances that initially prevented her, I had lost hope. I will make sure that if anyone I know needs immigration help, I will be sending them your way. Again, I can’t thank you enough.

    Akrami & Associates was extremely professional and the most efficient legal team I have ever had the pleasure of dealing. They responded to my emails quickly, never missed a phone call and explained the process to me in such a way that anyone could understand, even me. Thanks to them, I was able to hire the workers my business needed mush sooner than I had ever expected. You can’t go wrong with them.

    Reception was very nice and was sure to answer the questions he could but made sure I was taken care of by a rep at the firm. Shabnam was extremely helpful and I will be calling again when I am ready to proceed.
