The Secret to a Successful Study Permit Application

(Below is a transcription of this video)

Hello everyone. My name is Hishge Bessey of Today I would like to discuss about secret to a successful study permit application.

So, Canada offers great opportunity. Not only having one of the most qualified education, but also it opens the door for those who would like to immigrate to Canada permanently. So, it’s very important to get approval for your study permit so that you can pave your road towards immigration, for those who would like to immigrate. Also, for those who would like to academically grow, of course, you know, without having the approval of your study permit, you would not be able to achieve your goal.

Applying for a Canadian Study Permit

So how do you put up a successful application? Of course, step one is you have to apply to a college or university of your liking and you’re planning to study and you have to get the acceptance letter from the education institute in Canada. Once you have your acceptance letter, you are going to put your application together. One of the most important factors to consider when you are putting your application is to provide a sufficient fund that can cover your cost of tuition fee in Canada as well as your basic necessities during your study.

Tuition Fees

The immigration requires at least you have to show one year of coverage for fee as well as your expenses in Canada. So whether it is directly from your own pocket, or you have a support of your family or relatives, you have to show the clear documentation showing that that fund is available for your study. Keep in mind, when you are approved for your study permit and you start your study in Canada, you would be allowed to work for 20 hours per week during the study period and a full-time on your break, which helps students a lot.

Ties to Your Home Country

So second issue to consider is, because a study permit is temporary in nature, you have to convince the officer that you do have a great tie and sufficient tie in your country of origin and you are likely to go back once you complete your study. So how do you do that? You have to show whether it’s a familial tie, including your parents and your siblings and your spouse, children, whoever you have in your country of origin. You have to show that you have a reason to go back, because you have a great family ties. On top of that, if you own any assets, independently or co-owned with your relatives or your parents, you can show that as additional support. Also, some people have a job offer available when they end up their study, they can go back. Whether it’s their old employer or a new employer that is willing to hire you at the end of your study, that would be a great, great proof for you to establish that you’ll go back at the end of your study.

So I hope your application is successful. If you have any question and need assistance from us, please contact us at

    Please help me here.
    As an international students from a third world country , I wish to know if pay only first semester tuition fees at the moment is enough to grand me a study permit.
    Fees are paid in my university in three instalments. I have paid fees for first semester only and hoping to apply for study permit with that.
    Someone told me as an international student from a third world country, I have to pay full fees at once before Canada immigration can grant me a study permit.

    Hi. I got accepted into a Canadian institution and I apply for my study permit. My tuition fee was paid I have enough money to cover my stay,I have a job, my children and everything that Canadian embassy required and they still denied me. I went to an immigration lawyer and he said I must get documents fr my sponsor to prove that he’s qualified to sponsor me I did all of that and still they denied me,even with the help of a legal representative. I’m sending this email fr Jamaica.. Do you think I have a chance to study in Canada? Please assist me.

      Hello Sandy. 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 the same problem as you. If you need help with your application to make sure that you are not making any mistakes, and so that you will have a legal team taking care of all the matters that may arise, then please contact us to book a consultation with one of our immigration professionals.
