A student who wishes to pursue education in Canada must first obtain a study permit. A student does not need a study permit for a course whose duration is less than six months. But, to be on the safe side it is advisable for the student to apply for a study permit in case the student decides to study in Canada for an extended period of time. A student can apply for a study visa online or offline. The thing to keep in mind is that paper applications take twice as long as online application and it’s advisable to check processing time according to one’s needs. The visa office in India provides the applicants with the list of documents required to apply for the study permit in Canada.


STEP I: The student has to obtain a standardized letter of acceptance from a recognized Higher education institute. A student must apply for the certificate of acceptance, before the student is allowed to apply for the study permit. The student can get it online or can simply print out a form. The same can be obtained by requesting the university and any further details.

STEP II: The student has to get a student visa application package. This can be obtained from the CIC website, local visa office, Canadian embassy or the consulate in India. A student may need to obtain a temporary residence permit, but since the Study permit and temporary residence permit are processed together, hence there is no extra waiting for it.

STEP III: In order to be eligible for obtaining the study permit the student needs to answer a questionnaire on the CIC website and the student will also get a list of documents required, then the student will get to know if they can or cannot study in Canada.

STEP IV: Once the student has been found eligible, he/she will receive a personal checklist code. It is required to submit the online application. The student must keep the code with them safely, because they might need it for future reference.  The page will also contain an application guide, an estimated tuition fees amount, a list of documents you will need to submit with your application, and guidelines for your next steps.

STEP V: As soon as the student has prepared his/her documents and application form and have paid their fees, he/she can submit their completed application to the CIC.

STEP VI: The student has to appear for an interview and also needs to have proof to show that they have fund to support themselves.
