Thank you for choosing Canada as your study destination, there are a number of important steps to follow in order to apply to a Canadian institution.
1. CHOOSE PROGRAMS OF STUDY that match your educational goals, language needs, and geographical preference. Each institution’s web site and International Office are your best sources for information on admission requirements, programs, housing, health care, financial
programs, tuition and other costs, orientation and language programs, and other essential information. Look beyond the immediately recognizable names with the assurance
that Canada offers you a high quality education—all you need to do is find the right fit, the right place and program for your unique interests.
2. ADMISSION CRITERIA – EVALUATE YOUR ELIGIBILITY
– Each institution sets its own admissions criteria, so do your research with great care. Note that there is no national set of entrance exams for universities—instead, your prior academic records will be reviewed as part of the admissions process. In some provinces, you can apply
to multiple post-secondary institutions through a central application service while in others you must apply to each institution separately. Email applications are now widely accepted.
Remember that the admissions process for most programs is very competitive so it’s best to apply to more than one institution in case you’re not accepted by your first choice.
3. VERIFY LANGUAGE REQUIREMENTS – International students who want to study at the post-secondary level in Canada must demonstrate proficiency in either English or French, depending on the college or university. This may involve writing tests such as the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or Test de français international (TFI). Francophone universities in Quebec will require students who have not studied in French before to take
an exam. Many institutions offer English or French as a Second Language programs to international students who do not already have language proficiency.
4. APPLY EARLY – Deadlines vary, but in general you should apply at least 8 months prior to the start date of your desired program. Make sure your application is complete and accurate. Submit all the documents requested as soon as possible to avoid delays in the processing
of your application.
5. OBTAIN A STUDY PERMIT – In order to study in Canada for any program longer than six months, you will need to apply for a study permit from Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) well before you plan to arrive in Canada. To study in Quebec, you also must have a Certificate of Acceptance from the Province of Quebec. Depending on your country of origin you may also need a temporary resident visa. As part of your application for a study permit, you will need to show that you have been accepted by a Canadian educational institution and meet other requirements to enter Canada: you will need to show that you have enough funds to support yourself during the time you are studying in Canada, and you may need to go through medical and security checks as part of your application. While it is certainly legitimate to express your desire to stay and work in Canada after having completed your studies and your desire to eventually apply for permanent residency (if applicable), the onus is on you
to clearly demonstrate, in the application process for your study permit, that if unsuccessful in applying for these programs, you will then respect the conditions of your study permit and return home at the end of the period authorized for your stay.
