When applying for a study visa, there are various things to keep in mind. Let’s explore and simplify these aspects to help you start your study visa application process.


Check your passport:

One of the most important things that is often forgotten when preparing for a study visa application is the validity of your passport. It is crucial to make sure your passport is up to date, as this is not something that can be taken care of at the last minute.


Valid acceptance letter from a DLI-approved college or university:

A valid acceptance letter from a Designated Learning Institution (DLI) is an essential requirement for obtaining a study visa in Canada. The DLI must be recognized by the Canadian government and listed on the government’s website. The acceptance letter should include the program you have been admitted to, the start and end dates of the program, and the name of the institution.


Language Proficiency test

Language proficiency tests, such as IELTS or CELPIP, are required to prove your English language skills to the immigration officer when applying for a study visa in Canada. The scores from these tests are used to evaluate your ability to communicate effectively in the language of instruction at your chosen institution in Canada. All Institutes have different minimum required scores may vary depending on the institution, program and level of study.
