Study in Canada
Study Permit in Canada
Students from deserving countries are highly encouraged to apply for a Canadian study permit. In most cases, students usually have to apply for a study permit in their visa application; otherwise, they are not able to study in Canada.
Study permits have two types:
1. The regular-stream.
2. A fast track study stream.
The faster one is also called the Student direct stream “SDS”. And you can apply for that if you are a citizen of China, India, Morocco, Pakistan, the Philippines, Senegal, or Vietnam. Have a high school certificate and CLB 7 in a recognized English or French test.
If you have none of these, then you will not be eligible for the direct student stream. And you will have to apply for the regular study permit. Moreover, in some cases, you do not require a study permit at all.
1. If the course you intend to study or select is of 6 months or less in duration.
2. If you are a member of the family of a staff member of a foreign representative to Canada.
3. If you belong to any foreign armed force in Canada.
