Study in Canada from India - Applications open

Canada is one of the favoured countries by Indian students as their study abroad destination. It is home to a bunch of top-rated universities and colleges with affordable tuition fees as well. This makes it all the more appealing. The fact that Canada offers some stellar job opportunities is the cherry on top. Canada had a whopping over 550,000 new international students in 2022, which is a record intake. Their easing of travel restrictions and Post-Graduation Work Permit (PWP) rules have led to this surge in student intake. Apart from all these, the scenic beauty, multicultural diversity, and all-welcoming people are worth it.

About the Study Permit

The study permit is a document we issue that allows foreign nationals to study at designated learning institutions (DLI) in Canada. You can get Study Permit faster by applying online through Student Direct Stream (SDS).

SDS: Who can apply

You must have

  • Proof you have paid your tuition for your first year of study
  • Guaranteed Investment Certificate (GIC) of CAN$10,000

How to Apply

You must apply online to get faster processing for your study permit. There’s no paper application for the Student Direct Stream.


While submitting the application fee online, pay the Biometrics fee along with the Embassy fee. You will get a letter which will instruct you to give your biometrics that are fingerprints and photo. You need to take this letter and your valid passport when you go to give your biometrics. You have up to 30 days to give your biometrics in person.

On Arrival in Canada

When you arrive in Canada, you’ll meet a border services officer. The officer will ask to see your passport or travel documents, ask you a few questions and make sure you meet the requirements to enter Canada. You may have to prove that you’ll leave Canada at the end of your stay.

How long can you Stay

A study permit is usually valid for the length of your study program, plus an extra 90 days. The 90 days let you prepare to leave Canada or apply to extend your stay.

PR Opportunity

Once the student gets the study visa, after completing 2 years program, an applicant may get eligible for up to 3 years of Open Post Graduation Work Permit. After completing 1 year of a job as a part of an open work permit, students can apply for permanent residency in Canada through various programs like Express Entry, Canadian Experience Class, Provincial Nominee Programs of Alberta, Manitoba, Saskatchewan, British Columbia, Nova Scotia, and Quebec without leaving the country.
