International students who want to study in Canada have to apply for a document called Study Permit. IRCC issues this document that allows foreign nationals to study at designated learning institutions (DLI) in Canada. Most foreign nationals need a study permit to study in Canada. You should apply before you travel to Canada. Make sure you have all the documents you need before you apply.
Study in Canada because this is an increasingly popular option for students who seek and require a less expensive alternative to studying internationally. Canada is a booming hub for international students. It offers some of the world’s best study programs and is home to some of the world’s leading research facilities and academic institutions. If studying abroad is your plan, Canada should be at the top of your list. Canada also offer an option for International Students to work during and after the completion of their studies and thus providing them a direct path to permanent residence.
Student Direct Stream (SDS) is a new initiative introduced by IRCC to provide expedited Study Permit processing for international students from select countries. The SDS Stream serves the residents of five countries: China, India, Pakistan, Philippines and Vietnam. IRCC processes most SDS applications within 20 calendar days upon meeting all of their eligibility requirements.
