This experience has been damaged since the COVID-19 epidemic began in early 2020 as a result of the numerous rules and travel restrictions that have been put in place by several nations.

In the case of Canada, it was long since impossible for an overseas student to enter the country and enroll in a higher education program or study English or French.



The government decided to close the country’s borders in March 2020 due to the high rate of virus spread, forcing the educational system to reinvent itself and offer online preparatory courses for international students conducted from the country of origin to a new remote modality for those students who were already within Canada and had to continue their educational process.

Currently, and because Canada has a very sophisticated immunization procedure.

The government made the decision to reopen its borders and accept foreign students.


What is a Canadian Study Permit?

The IRCC issues the Canadian study permit, which enables international students to enroll in courses at Canadian designated learning institutions (DLIs).


To study in Canada, the majority of international students would need a study permit. Please make sure you have all the necessary paperwork before applying for the permit.



Note: A study permit isn’t a visa, as it doesn’t grant you access to Canada. You may also require an electronic travel authorization (eTA) or a visitor’s visa. If your study permit is approved, you will be issued one in addition to your study permit.


Below are the most important information and application you need before relocating to Canada.
