How to apply for a Canadian study permit

Studying in Canada may require a Canadian study permit if you are considering a program that is longer than six months. The Canadian government also outlines eligibility requirements which prospective students need to meet to be considered for a study permit. One such requirement is that the applicant must be able to provide sufficient evidence of funds to cover for:

  • the tuition and other school fees,
  • living expenses for the applicant and any family member accompanying them to Canada,
  • transportation cost to and from the applicant’s country of origin.


Apart from the above, the applicant must also meet the following conditions:

  • Be of sound character with a police certificate as evidence to ensure that you will not pose a security risk to Canada.
  • Be of good health with a medical certificate as evidence.
  • Sufficient proof that your purpose of stay is solely for studying and that you will leave Canada at the end of your authorized stay.
  • And lastly, you must be enrolled in a course from a Designated Learning Institution.


A confirmed enrollment is not a guarantee that you will be issued a study permit, as your application will be strictly assessed to ensure that you have established sufficient evidence to satisfy the Canadian government’s eligibility requirements. On occasions, students with not enough knowledge about the process fail to secure a study permit. There is help available for these students through seeking assistance from an experienced and reputable education consultant, but often, finding a consultant is challenging.
