FIND YOUR SCHOOL
Firstly, have a rough idea of what career you want and explore different schools.
PREPARE YOUR DOCUMENTS
Consider all the must-have documents and support materials needed for enrollment to a Canadian institution. Each province has a separate education ministry, and admission conditions vary. However, there are several universal documents for all institutions, like high-school diplomas and final grades.
READY TO SHARE YOUR MOTIVATION
Some schools require motivational letters or references. Remember, this important step outlines all documents needed for the following steps, and it requires maximum attention.
In Canada, students can choose to study in college or university. Both two enable learners to complete their post-secondary education. However, colleges offer job-oriented programs helping students build practical skills. Universities offer more theoretical approaches and broader views of the selected industry.
Some disciplines are more developed in certain provinces. We recommend selecting the program that matches the applicant’s career goals and interests. Note, the selected school must comprise the Designated Learning Institutions list, meaning the institution can host international students.
Canada has two official languages: French and English. Based on the language used in the selected institution, candidates must complete a language proficiency test. It assesses listening, writing, and communicating skills to ensure applicants can comfortably interact with professors or classmates. English-speaking programs require candidates to complete IELTS or TOEFL. Be ready to pass IELTS for at least 6.0 in each band. French-speaking schools require TEF, TCF or equivalent tests. Benchmark scores for enrollment differ from institution to institution. Some universities offer an introductory year for students who got insufficient test scores, where they improve language skills with native speakers while studying introductory subjects for their future program.
Your English is not enough? Do not worry!
Our agency will help you to pass programs with a direct admission to the college or university (ESL classe , Pathway programs)
You send out an application pack with documents, including transcripts from previous education institutions. Check additional entry requirements for the specific programs. If seeking a career in a creative industry, you may need to submit sample work along with other documents.
Do not all the eggs in one basket and have a backup plan along with your priority institution. Besides the application pack, you need to pay an admission fee starting at CA $100 plus security deposit. Note, high proficiency test results accordingly give candidates priority for enrollment to their chosen university among other candidates.
The application process might be complicated from the first sight! We will help!
Most people consider visas as the key document to study in Canada. However, to attend a Canadian institution, candidates must hold a study permit. Whereas, a visa allows prospective students to leave Canada for their home country during Summer break for example and then return to pursue their studies. To apply for this permit, you must provide a letter of acceptance from university or college, identity proof or travel document, and a financial statement to prove your ability to pay for tuition fees and other living expenditures in Canada. Plus, with this permit, you can legally work while studying.
