Study in Canada

Study in Canada

Canada is viewed as safe and immigrant-friendly and Canadian universities are actively recruiting international students Generally, a foreign national who intends to study in Canada for 6 months or less, does not require a Study Permit. If the period of study is for more than 6 months, you will require a Canadian Study Permit.

Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has taken further steps to promote Canada as a destination of choice for international students desiring to have quality education in Canada, by offering faster processing of Study Permit applications for international students with legal resident status in China, India, the Philippines and Vietnam, under the Student Direct Stream (SDS).

Study Permits

In order to study in Canada, international students usually require a Study Permit. This is a document available only after a college, university, or other accredited educational institution has accepted you. Study Permits are only available for schools designated to accept international students. Designated learning institutions appear on the official Designated Learning Institutions list, but only at the post-secondary level. Primary and secondary schools throughout the country are automatically deemed as designated institutions.

Ackah Law can help you get a Study Permit for Canada or the United States. But we cannot help you get into the school of your choice: you have to do the research and fill out the paperwork to get approved for the academic institution you want to attend.

Once you are accepted to a learning institution in Canada or the United States, we can help you get a Study Permit, and if needed for your home country, a Temporary Student Visa. We can't counsel you on which schools are better, or where you should apply. Our role as your legal counsel is to guide you once you have acceptance and can prove you can support yourself while in school.
