According to the Immigration Ministry of Canada, around 364,000 international students will get study permits in the year 2024. The government has put a temporary cap and decreased permits by one-third.

What to do after Applying for Canada Student Visa?

Once you have applied for the Canada student visa, your application will be processed. If your Canada student visa application is approved, you will receive your Canada study visa either at the port of entry or via email. In case you have applied for your Canada student from outside of Canada, you need to follow these steps:

  • You will receive a letter of introduction, which needs to be brought and shown to a border services officer. Your Canada study permit will be issued on the basis of this letter of introduction.
  • You will receive an eTA (electronic travel authorization) or a visitor visa (temporary resident visa) depending upon your country.
  • You need to present the following documents to the border services officer:
    • Passport
    • Letter of introduction
    • Acceptance letter from your university/college
    • Reference letters (as told by the visa officer)
    • eTA or Visitor Visa
    • Financial documents
    • Medical test reports
  • You also need to convince the immigration officer of your home country ties and that you will leave Canada after the completion of your studies

It is vital for candidates to know the reasons for Canada student visa rejection. Make sure to take appropriate steps if that happens and always have a backup plan in place before you start your study-abroad journey.

Intakes in Canada

There are three intakes in Canada for university and college admissions; these include Fall Intake (September-December/January), Winter Intake (January-May), and Spring/Summer (May-August). The following points will explain these intakes in brief:

  • Fall Intake (September–December/ January): The majority of applicants for admission to Canadian universities are in this intake. Students have the option to apply to a vast variety of courses and degrees during the fall semester, which starts in September.
  • Winter Intake (January-May): It is an extension of the fall intake and offers a fair choice of courses.
  • Spring/Summer Intake (May-August): This intake offers a limited number of courses.

Cost of Studying in Canada

Depending on the institution, programme, and region, different fees apply to studying in Canada. For undergraduate programmes, tuition expenses for international students in Canada typically vary from 6,000 to 40,000 CAD per year, while graduate programmes can cost up to 35,000 CAD per year. International students must pay for living costs such as housing, meals, transportation, and textbooks in addition to tuition fees. Depending on the city or region, the cost of living in Canada varies, however, it is predicted that students will need between CAD 15,000 and 20,000 per year to meet living expenses. It is crucial to remember that tuition rates and living expenses can change, so students should investigate the precise prices.

Scholarships for Studying in Canada

Canada is considered one of the top global study destinations for international students, however, studying here is not economical for some. Therefore, we have listed some of the popular scholarships for those who need financial support for pursuing their education in Canada.

Ritchie-Jennings Memorial Scholarship

OGS/QEII-GSST Scholarships for International Students
Central Sector Scheme of National Overseas Scholarship for SC etc. candidates Ontario Graduate Scholarship- Other Master Programs

Part Time Work in Canada

You are permitted to work part-time in Canada for 20 hours per week at a paid job while you are a student. You are only permitted to work for this many hours per week, though. Universities advise students who are enrolled in challenging or demanding courses to work a maximum of 12 hours per week. However, until December 2023, the Canadian government has removed the 20-hour per week cap on part-time work in Canada for international students.

Post-Study Work Permit Canada (PGWP Canada)

International students who have graduated from Canadian designated learning institutions (DLIs) are eligible for the Post-Graduation Work Permit Programme (PGWPP), which enables them to get a valid open work permit and gain work experience there. In order to be eligible for a PGWP Canada, your course must be at least 8 months in duration. If the duration of the course is less than 2 years (but more than 8 months), your work permit will be for a period equal to the duration of your course. If your course is for two years or more, you might receive a work permit of three years in duration.

Canada PR

You may apply for a Canada PR through Express Entry (Canadian Experience Class, Federal Skilled Worker Programme, Federal Skilled Trades Programme), PNP, etc. Getting Canadian work experience will help you obtain extra points (70 if you have a spouse and 80 if do not have a spouse) on the Comprehensive Ranking System. Moreover, there is no requirement for a Labour Market Impact Assessment (LMIA) once you have a PGWP. The LMIA demonstrates that a foreign worker is necessary to fill the open position. An LMIA application must be submitted by the employer. A PGWP, on the other hand, negates the requirement for an LMIA.

It is advised that students should take their documentation for their student visa Canada very seriously and with utmost care. Make sure to follow all the precise requirements and instructions.
