Canadian Study Permits a Success for Indian Students

Canadian-Study-PermitsThe number of Indian students enrolled in Canadian colleges and universities has doubled in just one year, due to higher acceptance rates from the schools  and more Canadian study permits issued, because of a joint program between Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) and the Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC).

How Canadian Study Permits Help Indian Students

The goal of the Student Partners Program, which started last April, was to increase the amount of Canadian Study Permit applications that were approved, as well as increase the acceptance rate of the students to various schools, which is needed to obtain a Canadian Study Permit. All students taking part in the program are still required to undergo the same screening as any other immigrant to Canada who wishes to study in Canada for a period of more than 6 months, and schools are provided with a feedback system to report the failure of any student to show up. “International students contribute to the cultural life and economic successes of colleges and institutes and of the communities they serve,” said James Knight, president and CEO of the ACCC, “In partnership with the CIC, we have doubled the approval rate of visas for students from India coming to Canadian colleges.” The program saw that Canadian visa offices in India were able to process applications for study permits in time for the students to begin their studies when school began in September.

Canadian Study Permits Statistics

  • The total number of international students studying in Canada is 178,000.
  • These students brought $6.5 billion to the economy in 2008.
  • Foreign students studying in Canada created 83,000 jobs for Canadians in 2009. Immigrants offer so much to the Canadian community, and programs like these help establish life-long learning experiences for students wishing to study in Canada.

    I am planning to pursue Post Graduate Diploma in Management from Canada. I completed my engineering course in 2006, working as an IT Manager for 8.5 years and going to apply for the diploma in 2016.

    The reason I am going for diploma instead of Masters degree is because of the cheaper cost and less duration.

    But, I am being told that I am over qualified for the course and my visa application success rate is very low in such cases. I should go for Masters degree instead.

    Can you share your thoughts?

      Hello Krishna. Every university and college has different entrance requirements for their programs. I suggest that find some schools that have the program that you want to study in and send them an application.

      Thank you for writing to us Rahul. It looks like from the information that you have provided that you have an excellent chance of being accepted to Concordia University or University of Windsor. There are of course many factors that go into a successful Study Visa application. The biggest mistake that most people make is in thinking that they can navigate the complex world of Canadian immigration on their own. Giving incomplete or incorrect information on your application will get it rejected, and you will lose your education opportunity until the next year. I recommend that you book a consultation with one of our immigration experts who deals specifically with Study Visas. We have been successfully helping students come to Canada to study, for over 18 years. You can book your consultation by calling us at 1-855-886-8472 or by going online at

      Thank you for writing to us Bab. Study permits are very difficult to obtain when your application is missing information or that the information is inaccurate. Was your previous visa a study permit? Every educational institution has a quota that they set for foreign students, some may be more difficult than others to get in. It also depends on your scholastic marks. Please Bab, complete this form for me it is just a quick and easy way for me to learn more details about you and your situation so that I will be able to advise you accurately and determine the best avenue for us to take to get you your Study permit.
