Student permits allow people to move to Canada and pursue excellent educational courses. These permits are governed by specific policies that ensure all candidates are screened and selected according to their desired educational needs and the courses available in Canada. The ideal student permit allows the country to ensure that it can fulfil the most relevant job needs in the future in a consistent manner. Here are some important details to immigrate to Canada on a student permit.
A study permit is required if you need to join an educational program in Canada. It is possible to apply online or through written documentation. Remember, CIC always aims to help students to join Canadian academic programs that prepare future skilled workers and academics for the country. In most cases, you need to obtain a study permit, before you visit Canada, to join an education program. The permit is usually limited and describes conditions, according to the documents that you submit.
There are several designated institutes in Canada where you can apply for education. Once you receive a letter of acceptance from one of these organizations, you can apply for a student permit on the basis of this letter. There are different methods to apply, such as visiting a Canadian Embassy or starting the process online.
However, you need to prove that you have the monetary sources to cover your education and ensure that you can manage your daily expenses while living in Canada on a study permit. You also need to show that you have enough money to make the return trip, after you have completed the educational program.
There is also a medical exam required to show that a student candidate is in good health and will not be a health burden when visiting the country. There is also an interview with the immigration officer, where you must satisfy them as a student that you will return to your country, once you have completed the particular course of academics that you are pursuing.
Another thing to remember is that you can also receive a limited student permit if the designated education institute asks you to first pass a preliminary program, which often takes a few months. You can apply for an extension of your student permit, once you qualify for the main program.
You need to share your medical and security information, along with the academic details to obtain a study permit. The security information often consists of notarized police reports that show you are of sound character and do not pose a security threat to the citizens of Canada.
You can also work in a limited capacity when you are present in Canada on a study permit. There are special criteria that you must follow until graduation. A post-graduation program allows for greater freedom, if you are combining work with your studies.
