How Can I apply under University or General Category for Study in Canada?

Last Updated on April 24, 2019 by West Highlander

As an international student aspiring to study in Canada there are three categories under which you can apply for Canada student visa

  • SDS category
  • University category
  • General category
  • If you have an IELTS band score of 6 in each of the four modules then it is highly recommended that you apply under SDS scheme which is streamlined program and avail faster processing time of up to 45 days. Based on your  overall band score of 6 and in  any of the modules if  it is 5.5 you can opt  for your Canada student visa under University and General category.

    If you fulfil the admission requirements of a relevant course of a University then it is highly recommended that you apply under University category and follow the relevant checklist. You may also choose to apply under general category for your Canada student visa permit.  It is very important that you choose a good quality college having a DLI number. If you would like to avail Post Study Work opportunities after your completion of your Study in Canada make sure that your course has got PSW rights attached with it. Not all DLI colleges have PSW attached with them.

    While applying for your Canada student visa under University and General category you need to provide additional documentation to support your Study in Canada application. You need to provide documentation that you are capable of supporting your education in Canada. You will need to provide statements to show that can pay the tuition fees for your full course fees as well support your stay in Canada.

    Other than the above you also need to provide documents that prove you have a good level of establishment in your home country. These may be in the form of your personal, social and economic ties in your home country.
