Canada is an English-speaking nation. Therefore, it is important that a student who aspires to study in Canada is proficient in the language. A good way to demonstrate your proficiency is by taking the standard exams of the International English Language Assessment System (IELTS) or the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL).

In addition to these, there are several other tests that a student might have to take. Depending on the school to which it applies or the course of study, it may be advisable or even mandatory to apply for one or more of the following tests:

For Undergraduate Study:

  • SAT

For Postgraduate Study:

  • GRE
  • GMAT

A valid passport and a valid long-term stay permit (student visa) are required to enter and study in Canada. The preparation of a new passport, if the student does not yet have one, can take from several weeks to a couple of months. The visa process can also take from a few days in some cases up to 2-3 months in others. Therefore, it would be convenient to take them into account when you start planning admission to the course in which you plan to study.

Work Eligibility In Canada

Students may work on the campus of the institution they are studying at, without a work permit, if they are:

  • Studying full time at a public post secondary institution or a private post secondary institution operating under the same rules as a public one,
  • They have a valid study permit.

To be able to work off campus,

  • A student must have a valid ‘Off campus work permit’. Such a permit allows you to work while studying but does not guarantee a job.
  • The institution at which the student is studying, must have signed an ‘off campus work agreement’ with their provincial government.

Working While Studying In Canada

Full-time students with a valid study permit, who study at an accredited public or private institution, may work on campus without a work permit. The type of work that students do under these conditions is usually that of a teaching or research assistant.

Some courses have industrial work as part of their curriculum and they have to work off campus for a few weeks or a few months. This is often seen in the case of the Co-op and Internship programs. In such cases, students must obtain a work permit in addition to their study permit.

In most cases, work permits for students are granted if:

  • The intended employment is an essential part of the program under study.
  • The employment is certified with a letter from an official responsible for the institution where the student is studying.
  • The duration of the Cooperative or Internship does not exceed 50% of the total program of study.
