I strongly recommend that you apply at least six months prior to you coming to canada to start your program why because you need a buffer period in case something happens let’s say you get rejected or something that comes up you need to make sure you have enough time to reapply to add extra documents to your application so that you have enough time before your program starts some people apply just two months prior and they run into this issue especially right now that the processing times are longer than normal they run into the issue of being late for the beginning of their semester and that’s something you don’t want to do second thing to know.
Before you apply for your study permit or a mistake a lot of people meet is choosing a cheap school and don’t get me wrong there is nothing bad about going to new brunswick community college paying ten thousand dollars a year for good quality education versus going to algonquin college in ottawa and paying 20 000 you will still get a similar decent education in both colleges but if you choose a college that’s five seven thousand dollars a year that’s not a designated learning institution which means your study permit application will be rejected make sure that when you choose your school it’s a designated learning institution and also please make sure that if you want to get pr that the school has the ability to give you a postgraduate work permit after you finish studies.
The third thing to know is covered restrictions you need to make sure that the school that you chose is prepared to host you by this time most schools have a quarantine plan it’s a two weeks plan where you stay at a hotel recommendation they provide food for yourself like that and most schools now have that info on their website so it’s pretty easy to find though the canadian government has their own requirement when it comes to a quarantine it’s actually a list of requirements that i have in my private discord group it’s a private community for like-minded individuals international students who seek funding they want to share accommodation in canada it’s an opportunity for you to network before you come to canada the link is in the description if you want to join the fourth thing to understand is the difference between your study permit and the student visa so some people reach out to me and ask me do i need to apply for the student visa separately or do i apply for just the study permit so the study permit is a document that allows you to live study and work part-time during studies and full-time during scheduled breaks in canada.
Whereas your student visa is just your ticket into canada so it allows you to enter canada and then at the airport you’ll be taken to immigration and there an immigration officer will give you your study permits there is something important to remember if your program has a co-op term or work term whatever you want to call it they must give you a work permit if you don’t get it at the airport you need to ask the immigration officer as sometimes they forget but of course don’t be demanding don’t dictate your rules for something like that you need to be really polite about and just ask oh and by the way i was wondering if it’s possible for me to also get my work permit as i have a co-op term the fifth thing to know before you apply for your study permits is a huge mistake people make that cost their application often i can’t stress this enough you need to attach a proper letter of explanation to your study permit application a lot of people either don’t do it at all because it says it’s an optional document but there’s no optional documents in your study permit application or they just do it in like five minutes just say i want to come to Canada study this and then get br and then their visa application is just rejected i covered this topic in depth in a separate video called five keys to a successful letter of explanation before.
