Step 3: Apply to a school

During the application process, provide accurate information and the required documents to your chosen school. The institution will guide you on necessary documents and next steps. Keep in mind that application fees vary by institution. Apply well in advance to ensure a smooth process.

Your school or a designated third party may verify your credentials and qualifications. Documents such as your report card, transcripts, and academic credentials may be required.

Upon receiving your letter of acceptance from the school, determine:

  • Whether you need a study permit from Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC)
  • If you qualify for expedited processing through the Student Direct Stream
  • How to prepare your documents and apply online with IRCC

Note: If you plan to study in Quebec, you may need a Quebec Acceptance Certificate from the government of Quebec before applying for a study permit.

Once IRCC approves your application, submit your passport. They will return it with your permit and a letter of introduction. When traveling to Canada, present this letter at the Canada Border Services, and upon approval, you will receive your study permit.
