If you intend to study in Canada and you are a foreign national, you will likely need a Study Permit. A Study Permit is a document issued by the Canadian Government which gives you permission to study in Canada for a temporary period.
In most cases the Study Permit specifies the particular educational institution and course of study.
More than 130,000 students come to study in Canada every year and even more come to Canada to learn English or French.
What You Need To Know about Canadian Study Permits
Study Permits are temporary resident visas and as such you will be required to satisfy a visa officer when entering Canada that you will be studying in Canada only for a temporary period.
Don’t make the mistake of filling out the paperwork incorrectly or not having the right supporting documents to show the immigration officer.
There are a number of criteria that must be met to qualify for a Study Permit:
- You need an offer of acceptance from a qualified Canadian educational institution.
- The offer of acceptance must be in the form of a letter from the school
- You have to demonstrate that you have sufficient funds to pay the school’s tuition and for your general living expenses during your course of study up to one year.
- Generally, if your course of study is for one year, you should show that you have $10,000CDN plus tuition.
- You may have to undergo an immigration medial exam and if you normally require a visitor visa to Canada, you will have to be issued one in addition to your Study Permit.

- You take a French or English language training course that is no more than three months in duration; or
- You are the spouse or dependent child of: a diplomatic or consular officer; a representative of a foreign country; or a representative of the United Nations or any other intergovernmental organization of which Canada is a member.
- If you are from a visa exempt country, you do not have to apply for a visitor visa to study in Canada.
