Canada offers multiple globally renowned and reputed universities, colleges and other educational institutes across the length and breadth of the country, making it a global favourite amongst foreign students seeking world class education in order to build a stable career for themselves.
Prospective foreign students looking to study in Canada must first secure a ‘study permit’, for which there are several eligibility criteria one must qualify. An international student is only eligible to receive a Canadian ‘student visa’ upon securing a ‘study permit’. A ‘student visa’ is imperative for an international student wishing to enroll into a Canadian educational course spanning a duration of more than six months. Your ‘student visa’ also indicates the duration of your stay in Canada, which means that you are only eligible to stay in the country until the date of expiry as mentioned on your student visa.
However, to facilitate their professional growth as well as boost their Comprehensive Ranking Scores, Canada offers its international students the chance to work during the duration of their course. This further eases the transition of prospective immigrants from international students to Canadian permanent residents.
