Canadian Student Visa Eligibility

 “An Investment in knowledge pays with a successful Future”

Making the right education choices requires an investment of time and early research. It makes the journey to your dream job or career goals a lot simpler. Student Visa in Canada and permanent residency are just part of the process but almost equally important. First step is to understand what you goal is for studying abroad, specifically Canada and how your education matches that. To do so, start by looking at the college and university programs that interest you and then look at the requirement of Student Visa in Canada below. 

MyStudia counsellors will always guide you to think about your career goals, to help make the right decisions early on. Trust us when we say this, it is much more difficult and time consuming to change the education level or realising you don’t meet the eligibility standards for a PR visa, once you are in Canada. Spend some time to review the types of student visas in Canada, the requirements and the benefits to studying in Canada on a student permit. You are only a call away from getting a counsellor’s advice on making the right decision for you.

  1. For Canada’s Student visa eligibility, here is the criteria:

 

  1. Online admission confirmation from a designated learning institution
  2. Prove adequate financial standing to cover costs (i.e. tuition fees, living costs, return travel)
  3. Obtain a NOC Certificate (No Objection Certificate) for the proof of no criminal records 
  4. Complete a medical exam for an health certificate
  5. Strong proof/reason to come back from Canada after completion of study 

You will notice a general theme of ICCRC requirements, aiming to ensure that anyone entering the country will have enough resources to cover their costs as well as reasonable proof that you will not stay back in the country illegally once the permit expires. Pretty standard.
