International students willing to come to Canada should get a visa first. For getting this visa, they have to go through certain procedures and attend a visa interview which would actually decide their future for coming to Canada.
Certain tips that could be helpful in obtaining visa:
• The first concern would be about submitting all the required documents through any of the visa facilitation centers.
• When you face an interview, one may be asked certain direct questions like, “reason behind choosing a university, future plans, the prospects of the course in home country, the capacity to fund the course.” However, one must always learn that no “cooked up answer” would be entertained by the officials. And one should not try to speak something other than his or her mind. There is every possibility that one would get caught.
You should be confident about what you say, however, this confidence will come only if you are true to yourself and to the officials.
• You must know the details and strengths as well as weaknesses of the university you choose for studying. A common answer would bring your score down. There are certain points like the world ranking, faculty, facilities and few other things that should be on your tips.
• Certain documents that you need to be ready with: Admission letter, original passport, photographs, fees, receipt, Visa application forms duly filled, a proof to ensure the funding of course fees, mark sheets, degrees, standardized score sheets of test and any other document
• Be prepared to answer why you have to come to Canada for taking up a course like this. If the same course is available in your own country then you really need to be present with a crispy answer on this, unless, the immigration officials may not get convinced.
• They will also try and establish a relationship of relevance between your earned degrees and the one you are going to earn now.
• Officials would also be interested to understand if you know the country and the place where you are going to live in Canada.
• They may ask your questions to understand the scope of the course you are planning to take up.
• They may question you on the future of this job, and for this they may ask you if you hold any intention of working in Canada after completing the course.
• They would like to know about your sponsor in details. This is meant to see the capacity of the sponsor to fund your study throughout, and hence the income details of the sponsor would be needed.
Preparing for a student visa interview is a matter of detailing. An applicant needs to be thorough with the various aspects of the course they are planning to enroll for, they need to know the other associated details too. A prompt and confident answer is what is desired by an official hence never try to make up things. Being genuine is the key to getting a visa successfully.
