Well, first of all, congratulations on the decision to pursue your degree in Canada because Canadian education is ranked among the top universities in the world; Canada is also known for its affordable international tuition rates compared to other western countries, including the United States and the UK,
Even though Canada is a relatively affordable option, there’s no doubt that studying abroad is expensive. International students in Canada can work up to 20 hours per week during school terms and full-time 30 hours per week during scheduled breaks like summer vacation.
Most students do not require a work permit to work while studying, whether on or off-campus. The study permit, on the other hand, will specify if you are permitted to work off-campus.
Canada has some of the best postsecondary education in the world. Furthermore, our college and university campuses are extremely diverse, as students of various races and nationalities come together to learn.
So how do I start this journey?
- Choose your school: You can’t get a student visa unless you’ve been accepted to an accredited college or university. If you haven’t decided on a school yet, you can start your search.
- Get accepted: We can’t help you here. This is all you. It’s your experiences and ambitions that will guide you.
- Prove you can pay: Next, you have to prove to immigration officials that you can finance your education and living expenses. You have to show them you can do it yourself or through sponsorship.
- Background check: You may also be required to have a medical exam and a police record check. Be prepared to do both.
- Of course, the paperwork: Depending on where you want to study, there will be different forms and documentation to fill out. Check Citizenship and Immigration Canada’s website for more details.
Your own country may have an impressive list of requirements for you. Check with your local education authorities to find out what you need.
