List of Required Documents for Canada Study Visa Application


Recommended Posts



Canada continues to attract a steady volume of students from around the globe. While getting admission to top Universities in Canada requires excellent academic scores, the permission to study is validated using a Study Permit. Suppose you wish to take academic, professional, or vocational training at a university, college, or any other educational institution in Canada. In that case, you will need a study permit before you enter Canada. This study permit is issued to students when they arrive in Canada. However, to get there, a student must first apply for a Temporary Resident Visa that is provided by the Canadian High Commission and facilitated by the Visa Application Centers.
