Students who are willing to leave for Canada from overseas countries are required to get a Student Authorization Visa before going to Canada for studies. All the international students in Canada should also meet the requirements of the Canadian Immigration Act and Regulations. Students are recommended to have at least two months before the commencement of the study programs for the visa procedures to be processed. It is a general procedure that the overseas students heading for Canada for studies should submit the completed application kit to the immigration section of the Canadian High commission.

There are more than 85 universities in Canada which provide high level of education to students coming from around the world. Canada has some of the finest private English schools from grade 1-12 for local as well as international students. The Canadian government spends 9.5 % of their GDP in the education system. Many Canadian education institutions are funded by the government and therefore they have some of the best facilities.

Basic process for obtaining student authorization.

  • Foreign students must apply to a Canadian education institute and obtain admission in such an institute. This institute must be certified by the immigration authority for the issuance of the student authorization / visa. This is generally mentioned in the prospectus of the school. If is not mentioned students must ask the institute directly whether admission in that particular institute will qualify him / her for student authorization.
  • Once the admission is secured, the student is required to make application to the Canadian immigration office for student authorization and visa.

I cannot explain in words how much Mr. Ramesh Pathi has helped me with the entire college process. On the very first meeting, Mr. Ramesh gave me a list of various check points for colleges that would need to be completed by certain dates. This really helped me to not procrastinate or miss any requirements or deadlines. Mr. Ramesh was always available to answer any questions and proof-read my applications (he even tests!). I greatly appreciate Mr. Ramesh’s help, and do not know what I would have done without his help."
