Thinking about travelling to Canada for study? Here are tips on how to ensure you get admitted to study the course of your choice.
Visit the website of the university
This is the first step in your application process. You have to visit the website of the university you have in mind, conduct a thorough research about the course you want to study, the environment or city, watch video clips of events in the university or things that interest you, and more. If you do not know the website of the university you intend to enrol in, search the name of the university on Google, visit the Wikipedia page, and read through, you will see the website of the university.
Select the course you want to study
After conducting a thorough research on the chosen university, select a course of study, check the requirements and see if you meet them. For international students, the requirements vary according to countries. For instance, what is required of a student from an English-speaking country is more likely to be different for a student from a Spanish-speaking country.
Gather your documents and proceed to application
Once you are aware of requirements for the course you want to study, take your time and carefully compile them to avoid mistakes during application. Some of the requirements might include certificate from previous study, proof of English proficiency (especially for students from non-English speaking countries), reference letters, statement of intent, application fees, and more.
Submit your application
Once you have filled all the required documents, submit your application. You will surely get a confirmation email from the school about successful completion of the application process.
How long do you have to wait for response?
This entirely depends on the school. But in most cases, you have to wait for 1-3 months before you get a decision from the admissions committee. International students are advised to submit application at least six months ahead of time due to how long you have to wait for the admission team, and the long Canadian visa process in some countries.
