How Do I Study In Canada?

November 14, 2016

luba dinkova - immigration advisorLuba Dinkova – Pace Immigration: If you are an international student and you wish to study in Canada, you aren’t alone.  Every year, hundreds of thousands of international students come to Canada to earn a diploma or a degree.

Students And Express Entry

In the past, it was relatively easy for students to study in Canada, gain work experience, and perhaps remain in the country as permanent residents. However, when the points-based Express Entry program was introduced in 2015, students weren’t given much credit for their Canadian education. That is now changing. Students will now be given 15 points for a one or two-year post secondary diploma, and 30 points for a program of three years or more, a Master’s program, or a PhD program. Note that post-graduation work permits are only open to publicly funded post secondary educational institutes and not private career colleges.

Study In Canada

Becoming an international student in Canada it is not an easy route but with proper guidance it can be fairly straightforward. With planning, you can eventually achieve permanent residence in Canada.

To start, you will need to obtain an acceptance letter from a designated learning institution. The Canadian government dictates which schools are on the list. You can find the list here.

Next, you must prove that you have enough money to afford your tuition fees, as well as living expenses for you and any family members that will accompany you to Canada. You will also have to provide a clean criminal background check and be in good health.

There is an option for your spouse to obtain an open work permit while you study, which ensures that your family is kept together.

There are also many different types of scholarships, awards and bursaries offered by the various learning institutions. These can go a long way towards helping you achieve your goal of a quality educaiton in Canada as well as a chance at permanent residency.
