Study in Canada

Points to remember when preparing to study in Canada.

Immigration

You need to request a Canadian study permit. Students going to Quebec will also need a Quebec acceptance certificate (CAQ).

Insurance

Information for French students going to Quebec (FR).

More information on health and insurance.

Accommodation

Unless otherwise stated and despite a very high rate of placement of international students on university campuses in Canada, there is usually no prior commitment from the host university to accommodate its international students on campus.

Choice of courses

Each university determines the course load required for a student to be considered full-time on a given programme.

Check the rules for validating the third year of Undergraduate College or a Master’s semester abroad.
