The Canadian Government provides an opportunity for all Indian students to study in the country full-time however, you’ll first have to obtain a Canada study visa. The visa you need will depend on your age, the type of study you want to pursue, and how long you want to stay in Canada.
It is a permit or a document issued by the Citizen and Immigration (CIC) which allows you to study in Canada. If you hold a study permit, you must remain enrolled and make reasonable and timely progress towards completing your course.
Firstly, to apply for your study permit, you will need:
You may also be required to appear for a personal interview at the Canadian embassy or consulate.
