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.

      Hello Deep. A study visa is one of the most difficult to obtain because the reviewing officer needs to make 100% certain that you will return home after your studies are complete. Many people who attempt to apply on their own, face difficulty. The first step is to get an acceptance letter from Georgian College. Once you have the acceptance letter we can help you obtain your study visa.

              Hello Mani. For a study visa, you need a letter of acceptance from an accredited Canadian learning institution, the proof of sufficient funds to sustain yourself during your studies, and you must show that you will return to your home country when your studies are completed.

    Hi, I have completed my b.com without any backlogs in 2013. After that I went to Singapore to pursue CPA (in Oct 2013) i studied for 3 months, and worked for 2 months in Taxation, but I realised that it is not my field and decided to switch careers. I left my job in Singapore and returned to India in August 2014. I joined a 2 year certificate diploma in visual communication, as art has always been a passion for me. This 2 year certificate course is not recognised by any university. I have my art protfolio and I wish to pursue the graphic design advanced diploma at fleming college for fall 2106. This course will get over in june 2016. My question is will i be able to get a study permit for the course i wish to pursue without a recognised degree or any relevant work experience. thank you.

    Hi,

    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?

      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 http://goo.gl/JFZqPm
