Did you recently graduate from High School outside Canada? Or maybe recently completed a program of study? Do you wish to Study Inside Canada? If so, you need a Study Visa, Student Permit, or Student Visa — they all mean the same and fall under the same application. Some factors used to determine eligibility include:
- Your age
- English scores: IELTS or CELPIP
- Gaps in studies
You can greatly increase your chances of getting your study permit approved if you have favorable documents on the above 3 factors, thereby eliminating common study permit refusal reasons. Some common study permit refusal reasons include:
- Insufficient funds
- Studies within Canada not in line with studies abroad
- Unsatisfactory ties to your home country are strong
As with the visitor visa, it’s beneficial if you have a close family member living in Canada. A brother, sister, uncle, or aunt living in Canada and who is willing to support your study permit application significantly increases your chances of approval. Moreover, having someone within Canada who can be of help in your time of need assures the Canada Immigration Officers that you can have a successful study in Canada. Also, any gaps in studies must be explained with genuine reasons. The wider the gap, the greater the explanation. Contact us now and we will be happy to discuss the options available to you!
Most studies within Canada allow for spouse’s work permit and/or children’s study permit along or after the original application. Moreover, after completing your studies in Canada, students are able to apply for a Post Graduate Work Permit that allows them to work in Canada. After working with an employer in Canada for a period of time, you can apply for Permanent Residency within Canada.
