Canadian Student Visa: Everything That You Need to Know

Choosing to study abroad in Canada is a wonderful opportunity to learn and discover about yourself, a new culture, advance in your language abilities, acquire a globally recognized degree and develop long-lasting friendships with the many other international students studying in Canada.
To commence your study abroad program application process, it’s essential to know what requirements you need to study in Canada, know what major you should study in Canada, and understand the application process to obtain a Canadian student visa.

As a registered CICC Canadian consultant and Canadian-owned immigration consultant here in Vietnam, Northern Road is well-equipped to help you through the application processes to ignite your dreams to study in Canada.

What is a Canadian Study Permit?

A Canadian study permit permits foreign nationals to study at any designated learning institution (DLI) across the country. To study in Canada, international students candidates need to obtain a letter of acceptance from the DLI that they wish to attend, which, when received, permits the student to apply for a Canadian student visa.

Canadian Student Visa: Student Direct Stream Program

Student Direct Stream (SDS) is Canada’s fast-track access to study in Canada. If your application meets all the below requirements and does not have any inadmissibility concerns, the application process can generally take 20 days.

Canadian Student Visa: Regular Study Permit Stream

The Regular Student Permit Stream applies to both primary, secondary and post-secondary students who did not meet one or more of the SDS requirements. The main difference between the SDS program and Regular Study Permit Stream is the processing time which is generally longer than 20 days and will vary depending on the volume of applications received by the visa office at the time of your application.
