Study Permit Overview

The Study Permit is a document the Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) issues that allows foreign nationals to study at designated learning institutions (DLI) in Canada. Most foreign nationals need a study permit to study in Canada.

The Study Permit is not a Visa. The Study Permit doesn’t let you enter Canada. You may also need a Visitor Visa or an Electronic Travel Authorization (eTA). If the IRCC approves your Study Permit, they will also issue a Visa to you with your Study Permit.

Once you finish your studies, you would be eligible for a Post-Graduate Work Permit. The combined Canadian Experience can than be used towards a Permanent Resident application, under the Canadian Experience Class.

In order for you to qualify for a Study Permit there are a few requirements that will determine your eligibility to come to Canada and pursue your educational goals.
