Study Permit



How should I go about applying for my study permit?
You may apply for your study permit only when you have received a Letter of
Acceptance from a Canadian institution.  Study permits applied for in Singapore
usually take a period of at least 6 weeks to process.

Is a medical examination required for the study permit?
Yes, all applicants are required to pass a medical examination. Citizenship and Immigration Canada only accepts medical exam results from a Designated Medical Practitioner (DPM). A list of eligible DPMs will be provided to an applicant when he/she is deemed ready for the medical examination.

My study permit has been refused, can I make an appeal?
Unfortunately, there is no appeal process for refused applicants; however, you are eligible to re-apply at a later date.

How long is my study permit valid for? What are the procedures for renewing the permit?
Students will usually receive a study permit for the full period of their studies, eg. three or four years. However, it is possible that you are issued a permit for only a period of one year. To renew your permit, please submit an application to the Case Processing Centre in Alberta, Canada BEFORE the expiry of your authorization. Forms are available at CIC Centres across Canada.
