Over half a million students apply to study in Canada each year. It's no question that Canada's education system is top class and can set you up for a prosperous career. For many, it's also the first step in their immigration journey towards becoming a Permanent Resident of Canada.
However, just because you obtained your Letter of Acceptance does not mean you are guaranteed a study permit. There are several requirements you must satisfy to be granted a study permit. Any mistakes in your application could result in a refusal and potentially delaying your future.
What You Need To Show
Letter of Acceptance
You need to obtain a Letter of Acceptance from a Designated Learning Institution (DLI) before you can apply for a study permit.
Explain why you decided to study in Canada and how it will advance your career goals back home. Be specific. General remarks that are vague will not be taken seriously and can be grounds for refusal.
Demonstrate financial ability to pay for your first year tuition fee + cost of living for one year ($10,000).
If you have a financial sponsor, make sure it is clearly communicated. Demonstrate your relationship to the sponsor and their financial ability to support you.
Ties to Home
Convince the immigration officer that you will leave Canada after graduation with strong reasons to return home.
Make sure your passport validity covers your entire stay in Canada.
