Every year, a large number of international students visit to Canada to pursue higher education. Most students choose to stay in Canada even after finishing their studies by applying for a work permit or permanent residence visa.

Study at a best Canadian college or university

If you wish to become a part of Canada's leading educational institutions and avail world-class education. In that case, you must apply for admission, followed by applying for a study permit.

  • Choose a college and study program

Each province and territory in Canada manage their own education system and has unique admission rules and requirements. However, as an international student, you must enrol at Provinces and territories approved schools, called Designated Learning Institutions (DLI). All primary and secondary Canadian schools are DLIs.
