- Complete your Language Proficiency Test:
For every international student looking to visit Canada for educational purposes, one of the mandatory requirement criteria is to prove their Language proficiency in either French or English. Usually, IELTS score is considered to be the eligible benchmark for language proficiency by most of the Canadian Universities, some educational institutions also allow TOEFL scores.
If you’re looking to submit your French language abilities, DALF, TCF, or DELF are the tests you can take. On the other hand, most people prefer taking TEF.
Decide about the test, proceed with the fee payment, and book your date slots in advance. Make sure that you practice and enhance your language skills to ensure that your application gets accepted.
- Applying to multiple Universities:
By now you should have a list of preferred universities, which you should start contacting, obtaining their application forms, and eventually submit the applications before the deadline. Being able to apply to various preferred universities can be a good thing, but you should also consider about the application fee costs.
Never apply for random universities. Make a proper comparative analysis, where you should assess multiple aspects that impact your education in Canada.
While applying, make sure that you fill up all your details and information properly without any mishaps. After it’s done, you should simply wait for contact from the university to which you’ve been selected.
- Applying for a Canadian Study Permit:
If you’ve been accepted by an institute or university, you should start with applying for Canadian Study Permit. You can do this either online or by visiting your local visa application office. You should attach your acceptance letter, passport, and proof of your financial ability to be self-sufficient along with your study permit application.

If you’re accepted, you can start your planning on traveling to Canada.
Your study permit comes with a start date, which makes you eligible to enter Canada. Make sure that you don’t plan your travel before this date.
