Study in Canada on a Canadian study permit

If you would like to go to school in Canada, you could count yourself be among the over 130,000 students from other countries who do the very same thing every year. Attending school in Canada is a powerful way to expand your knowledge while also studying French or English, and thanks to the the CEC, or Canadian Experience Class, you may be able to eventually apply for permanent resident status depending on their qualifications. But if you want to come to Canada to go to school, you will more than likely need a student visa or study permit. 

Study in Canada on a Canadian study permit

Are you a foreign student who wants to go to school in Canada? It can depend on your native country, but you may have to apply for a temporary resident visa so that you enter Canada in the first place, depending on if your home country is visa-exempt or not. It is a possibility that you will have to pass a medical examination, also.

There are also two other requirements in addition to the above if you wish to attend school in Canada as an international student. These requirements are:

1. Someone who wishes to apply for a student visa has to have a letter of acceptance issued by a qualified education institution in Canada.

2. You have to have enough money to support yourself and cover your expenses like housing when you are studying along with covering all of your tuition. Even though international students are permitted to work in certain circumstances (like working on-campus or as a part of your study program), you cannot depend on that to support you entirely.

I am grateful for the legal services that I got from Sanaa and Alicea of Visa Place. I was impressed by their client centered approach. Their professionalism involved their hearts and heads to work on my case. I cannot compare the time they spent on it with the money I paid. All they wanted was a fine final document. I also liked their prompt communication. They are really passionate about what they do.
