Study in Canada

Canada has one of the best education systems in the world. This is why each year, the number of international students studying in Canada keeps growing. To study in Canada, you need to acquire a study permit first. A study permit, once issued, allows a foreign national to study in Canada at an approved institute for the duration of the specified course or program.

How to apply for a study permit?

Before you start your application, ensure that you meet all the requirements set by the IRCC to qualify for a study permit. This avoids wastage of time and money. If you meet all the qualifying factors, including enrolment into a DLI, then you can start applying for a study permit.

Certain documents are required when applying for a study permit. These include:

  • Proof of acceptance into a designated institution
  • Valid travel documents/ Passport
  • Financial proof that you can support yourself and any accompanying family members

Depending on the uniqueness of your case, you may require additional documents, including a letter of explanation and a custodian declaration (for minors), among other documents.

Once you have all your documents ready, complete your application forms online or by hand. We recommend completing your application online as it’s more advantageous. The online application saves you time, mailing fee, makes it easier to update your application, and the IRCC receives your application immediately after submitting it.

Once you’ve filled out your study permit forms and attached all the essential documents, you can make the required payments to IRCC. The fees include study permit and biometric fees.


After completing your forms and attaching all your documents, including proof of fee payment, submit the study permit application to IRCC. If you fill the application online, you can submit it online. If you fill it by hand, send it via the provided mail on the instruction manual.


When IRCC receives your study permit application, they may request for additional information during processing. These include medical examinations, police certificates, and biometrics. Make sure you provide this information within the given time frame.


Once your student visa is approved you will receive a port of entry letter of introduction. You will need to show this to the official once you arrive in Canada who will then give you your study permit, which allows you to study in Canada. You will also automatically receive an eTA or temporary resident visa that will allow you to enter Canada. Be sure that you also have all your required and additional supporting documents with you in case you are requested at your port of entry.
