Why You Should Study in Canada

Ranked as one of the top countries for education by U.S. News and World Report, Canada is an attractive destination for international students from across the world. It is home to 21 of the world’s top 500 universities and welcomes more than 600,000 international students every year through the study permit program.

The Study Permit

A study permit is a document issued by the IRCC, that allows international students to study at Canadian-designated learning institutions (DLIs).

Although many people use “study permit” and “study visa” interchangeably, it is important to note that a study permit is not a visa.

You are not granted entry into Canada with a study permit.
