Study Abroad in Canada
Start Now

Canada's educational systems vary from province to province and territory to territory. Most communities offer instruction in both English and French, depending on the number of local students fluent in the latter. Typically, high school lasts from ninth to twelfth grade. After grade eleven, students in Québec enter a program called CEGEP that helps them get ready for college or a career in a technical profession.

After that, they have the option of enrolling in a university or a vocational school. They will begin their academic careers at the institution with a Bachelor's degree and have the option to move on to a Master's or Doctoral program. Certificates and degrees in numerous trades will be awarded to vocational students.

In addition, candidates must have a high school GPA of at least 70% in the Science/Commerce stream and 65% or higher in the Humanities stream. Students who have not achieved the required 60% might enroll in the Foundations or Diploma programs. Before enrolling in college, the student should be at least 18 years old.

    Applying to university in Canada is largely done online. To apply to each school, you must visit its individual website. The majority of universities now require applicants to create an account on their site in order to submit their personal details, scanned documents, and application costs. Through this channel, you will be updated on the status of your application at each level. The application procedure varies each institution, so check their respective websites to learn more.

    Application fee: There is a non-refundable application fee associated with applying to any college. Please contact each college directly to inquire about their application fee, as it will vary based on the institution and the program to which you are applying.

    Steps: The common steps to applying for admission are as follows:

  • Search for colleges and courses

  • Contact schools and visit websites for information

  • Narrow down your list of schools

  • Take the entrance exams like SAT, GMAT, GRE, TOEFL, IELTS

  • Write SOPs and ask for LORs

  • Apply to the colleges which fit your interests

  • Appear for video interviews of the colleges that shortlisted you

  • If accepted, apply for student visa

SOP: Your Statement of Purpose (SOP) is your first impression on admissions staff and faculty at your target schools. It's always written in the first person and explains why you're applying to that specific university. It should emphasize your qualifications and why the college would be a good fit for you. The tone of your writing could range from official to informal, but it should always be authentic to who you are.

Essay: A prospective student must also submit an essay. College admissions essays play a significant role. There could be one or two obligatory essays and a few more that are just extra credit. Common areas of discussion include job goals, personal qualities and shortcomings, relevant skills and experiences, and motivation for attending a specific institution.

LOR: A letter of recommendation (LOR) is a a recommendation letter from an outside source outlining the applicant's strengths and qualifications in relation to the job or role for which they are applying to college. This outsider could be anyone from a lecturer to a superior.

Intake seasons: The majority of schools begin each semester in September and January, while May, July, and October are other common times for new students to enroll. In Canada, September is "major intake" time for the best programs, while January is "minor intake" time for a lesser number of programs.


Conditions: Submit your visa application only after receiving official notification of acceptance to your preferred school. Starting the visa application process in June will put you on track for a September start date. Please provide the following materials with your application.

• Proof of acceptance: A letter of acceptance from a Canadian elementary, secondary, postsecondary, or higher education institution is required for international students planning to study there. The original letter is required to be included with the application for a student visa.

• Proof of financial support: You and any family members coming with you to Canada will need to show proof of sufficient funds to live off of throughout your time there.

Please be aware that it may be necessary to submit further proof. The interviewer may ask for more paperwork at the in-person meeting. These pieces of paper could be used as academic or financial proof:

• Transcripts, diplomas, degrees, or certificates from schools you attended

• Scores from tests, such as the TOEFL, SAT, GRE, or GMAT

• Your intent to depart from Canada upon completion of the course of study

• How you will pay all educational, living and travel costs


Process: The process of obtaining a visa involves multiple stages. See how long it takes to process: It could take three to four weeks to process a visa application. If you want to know how long it will take to get a student visa to Canada, you should check the consulate's website. The estimated completion time is not a promise, but an estimate only.

Think about how you'll apply: You can apply in one of two ways:

Apply online: You will also need a credit card or other method of electronic payment and access to a scanner or camera to complete an online application. The local Visa Application Center (VAC) will still need a scan of your fingerprints.

Apply in person: The application kit and its accompanying instructions can be downloaded here. Study permit requirements and application procedures are outlined in detail below for your convenience. Use the document checklist and make sure you've read the guide thoroughly.

Pay the processing fee: For information on how much a study permit will cost and how to pay for it, please review the pricing schedule. In no event will a refund be issued for the processing fee. All of the more than 130 VACs spread over more than 90 different nations will be able to take a fingerprint or photograph as part of the biometrics process. The Indian student must apply for the visa at the nearest VFS office.

You must pay the relevant processing costs for your spouse/common-law partner and/or children if you intend to apply for temporary resident visas, work permits, or study permits on their behalf.


Submit your application and supporting documents: Since fingerprints are required, unfortunately, we cannot accept paper applications. You can apply online or drop off a paper copy at a local VFS office. You must visit a VAC to submit your biometrics regardless of the situation.

Medical Exam: Medical examinations are mandatory for Indian visa candidates in Canada. The medical exam must be performed by someone other than your own doctor. The official Canadian immigration website ( provides a list of panel physicians you must visit.

After you've had your checkup, your doctor will report his findings to CIC. The test can be taken either before or after the visa application is submitted.
