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 those accepted to 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.

How Can I Get a Canadian Study Permit?

Once a post-secondary student determines which schools are designated and is accepted into one, he must then put together the appropriate documentation to apply for his Study Permit. Interestingly enough, not all students technically require a Study Permit, if the program is less than 6 months, you will not require a Study Permit. However, it is advisable to obtain a Study Permit because it will allow you to obtain a "Work Permit" allowing you to work part-time on campus and possibly off-campus when you are a full-time student.

The Essential Documents

The most basic document list required by the visa office for a Study Permit includes:

  • Proof of acceptance into the designated institution
  • Proof of identity
  • Proof of financial support
  • Letter of explanation (a letter explaining why you are requesting a Study Permit)

To apply for a Study Permit, you can do so online or on paper by visiting the Canadian visa office in your home country. Processing times vary based on location, and you can check the expected turnaround times online.

My brother suggested Ackah Business Immigration Law. He just raved about Evelyn Ackah and told me that she would definitely take care of me. At first I thought the fees were a little steep because I have heard of other people paying a fraction of the fee quote I received. However, I do know that you get what you pay for. Ultimately, I am so happy that Ackah Business Immigration Law took me on as a client and supported me through the LMIA process. Evelyn Ackah’s team was absolutely amazing to work with! They were very responsive. They responded to all of my emails quickly – even on weekends! . Evelyn called me right away to talk through the issues with me. Words really just can’t describe the level of service I received from this firm. I have worked with many different lawyers and professionals before and I can definitely say that Evelyn Ackah and her team provide exceptional service. They are worth every penny! Thank you again Ackah Business Immigration Law for all of your hard work!
