What makes us the right choice?

Benefits of studying in Canada

Students studying in Canada can work up to 20-hours per week during regular school sessions and work full-time during the holiday when school breaks. Please note that while you are planning on working whilst studying in Canada, you still need to demonstrate to the visa officer that you are capable of paying for your educational expenses without relying on the job you will be doing while working in Canada.

Canada has made it possible for you to bring your spouse and children along with you while you are studying. How wonderful this is to have your family accompany you to Canada on this beautiful journey?  If your spouse is going to Canada with you, he/she can apply for an open work permit that allows your spouse to work full-time while you are studying. The open-work permit will last for the duration of your studies. If your spouse gets approved for an open work permit, the money they will be earning can alleviate some of your educational expenses.

All international students who have completed their studies in Canada are eligible to obtain a Post-Graduate Work Permit. However, to qualify, they must have completed their studies at an eligible Canadian tertiary institution. The Post-Graduate Work Permit allows you to work in Canada and gain work experience, which makes you eligible to apply for permanent residency under the Canadian Experience Class.

A Post-Graduate Work Permit allows you to work in Canada for the same duration as the program you studied in Canada. For example, if you graduate from a four (4) years degree program, you will be eligible for a three (3) years Post-Graduate Work Permit. If you graduate from an eight-month (8) certificate program, you will be eligible for an open work permit valid for one (1) year.

Studying in Canada is the easiest way to become a permanent. After graduating, the next step will be to apply for your post-graduate work permit so that you can gain one (1) year of work experience to be eligible to apply for permanent residency under the Canada Experience Class. For example, a student that has completed their studies in Canada and is currently working on their post-graduate work permit for one (1) year would be qualified to apply for permanent residency under the Canadian Experience Class. The Canadian Experience Class allows graduates to make a successful transition from temporary to permanent residence.

Many students choose to study in Canada because Canada has one of the lowest tuition fees in the world. Though some students might have the opportunity to study in other countries, such as the United States or the United Kingdom, they prefer to study in Canada as Canada remains competitive when it comes to accommodation, tuition fees and other expenses. Canada places a lot of emphasis on education and maintains one of the highest standards in education. A degree acquired from a Canadian university is recognized globally and highly valued in the international job market.

Studying in Canada is one of the best decisions you could ever make in your life. Canadians are some of the friendliest people globally, and you will probably find this to be quite true if you decide to study in Canada. The Canadian society is welcoming to all people. The country is considered safe, and there is a relatively high standard of living. Canada is among the ten (10) safest countries in the world to live and do business. While studying, you won’t be alone; approximately half of a million international students in Canada are currently pursuing their educational goals and dreams.

How can you apply for the Canada Study Permit?

STEP 1:

Choose a school in Canada to study

To qualify for a Canadian study permit you must choose the right program to study

To qualify for a Canadian study permit you must choose the right program to study. Choosing the right program to study in Canada is one of the most crucial factors in a visa officer’s decision when approving a Canadian study permit. When choosing a program, it’s best to choose a program that aligns with your work experience and educational history.

For instance, if you have a degree or work experience in Mechanical Engineering and you decide to pursue a nursing program. In that case, the visa officer might deny you under the basis that they do not see how the program will benefit you based on previous qualification and work experience. As such, it is best to choose a program that aligns with your previous work history or qualifications; this will give you a better opportunity for approval. Nonetheless, you have the freedom to choose any program of your choice once you are able to explain to the visa officer, why you choose this program and how it will benefit you in your future endeavors.

When choosing a program, you must consider the duration of the program and your educational expenses. The Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has advised that you show at least one (1) years’ worth of financing for your tuition and living expenses (CAD $10,000 per year).

To put it more direct, if you do not have the money to cover your tuition and living expenses for a two (2) or three (3) year program, it is best to choose a program that is eight (8) months to one (1) year in tenure for a better chance of approval. However, you are able to apply for the program of your choice, regardless of the length of study once you can prove to the visa officer that you are financially able to support yourself while studying in Canada.

Qualifications

The passport should cover the duration of your study so ensure its expiration date is after the intended date of completion of your study. Provide both current and previous passport if you traveled on the previous passport before.

Financies

Having sufficient funds available to pay for your tuition and living expenses is the most crucial factor in a visa officer’s decision when granting a Canadian Study Permit. The Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has advised that you show at least one (1) year worth of financing for your tuition and living expenses, which amounts to CAD $10,000 covering living expenses, plus your tuition fee that is stated in the acceptance letter. In the event that you are taking your entire family] along with you, it will be CAD $4000 for your first family member and CAD $3000 for each additional family member.

Reasons for denial

MOST COMMON REASONS FOR DENIAL

These reasons were carefully prepared to better increase your chances of approval if taken into consideration. Book a consultation to speak with an Immigration Consultant today. 

Having sufficient funds available to pay for your tuition and living expenses is the most crucial factor in a visa officer’s decision when granting a Canada Study Permit, which is why The Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) advised that you show at least one (1) year worth of financing for your tuition and living expenses. Most times, applicants don’t have the funds to cover their tuition and living expense, which, as a result, generally leads to their denial.

Before you decide to start your journey of studying in Canada, ensure that you know how much your tuition and living expenses will cost to have the funds available to pay for these expenses. A visa officer can immediately know without a doubt whether an applicant can pay for their tuition and living expenses based on the amount of money that is in their bank account or their sponsor bank account. If you do not have enough money to cover your tuition and living expenses, the visa officer will deny you due to insufficient funds to maintain yourself or any family member that will accompany you to Canada.

Though you will be working while studying in Canada, this should not be entirely relied upon to pay your tuition and living expenses, as you are only entitled to work 20 hours per week, and you might not get enough hours to work. The money that you earned from working in Canada can be used for necessities. This is why IRCC is adamant that you should have enough money to cover your tuition and living expenses.

When choosing a program, ensure that you dialogue with the school to help you select a program that aligns with your qualifications or work experiences. For example, if you have a degree or work experience in Mechanical Engineering and decide to pursue a nursing program, the visa officer might deny you because they do not see how the program that you have chosen will benefit you based on your qualification or work experience. As such, it is best to choose a program that aligns with your qualifications and or work experience, especially if you have been in the same job for a couple of years. You can choose any program of your choice once you are able to explain how the program will benefit you in the future.

Most applicants that apply for a study permit main intention is to apply for permanent residency at the end of their studies. However, you shouldn’t give the visa officer the impression that you do not plan to leave Canada at the end of your studies even though your sole intention is to apply for permanent residency. There is a process to apply for permanent residence under the Canadian Experience Class, and If you are not eligible, you will have to leave Canada whenever your study permit expires. If the visa officer comes to the realization that you do not plan to leave Canada at the end of your stay, they will deny your study permit application.

There are several forms that must be properly completed, along with multiple supporting documents that you must submit to the Canadian Embassy to get your study permit approval. Many applicants have tried to complete their study permit application by themselves, making minor mistakes and failing to submit some of the required documents thus resulting in a large number of study permit denial. The Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) does not tolerate simple mistakes; once a form and/ or a document is missing, your application will not be placed on hold, nor will they send you an email for the missing copy. So, if you did not submit your police record along with your application, you are automatically denied. Ensure that you hire a professional immigration consultant if you do not fully understand the entire process and the necessary documents that are needed to be submission.

If the possibility lies that your family members in Canada might allow you to stay with them after your study permit expires, they might deny you. The reason for that is, though Canada wants people to become residents, they want you to reside in Canada legally. There is a process when applying for permanent residency under the Canadian Experience Class after your Canadian study permit expires. If you are not eligible, you will be required to leave Canada and return to your home country.

I desperately needed a letter of explanation to apply for my Canadian student visa and didn’t know where to turn. During my late night studies, I took a break and was just browsing through the internet and I came across Expedite Travel Services (blessing in disguise I tell you!) I sent then a message, not expecting a reply until the next day and then bam I was speaking to someone about the need for the letter. They were EASY to deal with, they knew exactly what I wanted and the process was soo easy. Everything was done to the ‘T’ and I’m a happy customer as I was successful in my application, I wouldn’t recommend any another company.
