The Canadian Government provides an opportunity to Indian students to study in the country but as a prerequisite, you’ll have to obtain a Study Permit and a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV).
What is a study permit?
This is not a visa, it’s a permit or a document issued by the Citizen and Immigration (CIC) which allows you to study in Canada. If you hold a study permit, you must remain enrolled and make reasonable and timely progress towards completing your course.
Your study permit is always accompanied along with a visitor visa or Electronic Travel Authorization (ETA). Please note that a study permit is a document that allows you to study in Canada while a visitor visa or ETA allows you to enter Canada. Your counsellor will help you access the latest information and connect you with authorised migration experts.
Documents required for your Canada study permit
To apply for your study permit, you will need:
An acceptance letter from your education institution, and
A valid passport or travel document
Proof that you can support yourself or any family members who might accompany you, while you’re in Canada
Prove that you have enough money to pay for your:
living expenses for yourself and any family members who come with you to Canada, and
return transportation for yourself and any family members who come with you to Canada
Be a law-abiding citizen with no criminal record and not be a risk to the security of Canada (you may have to provide a police certificate)
Be in good health (you may need to complete a medical exam)
Student Direct Stream Canada
Indian students applying to universities and colleges in Canada can expect faster visa processing through the Study Direct Stream (SDS) program launched by the Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada. The usual visa processing that may take up to 2-3 months, SDS allows students from India to avail their visa in 4-6 weeks.
However, if you choose to apply through SDS, you may need certain additional documents.
