What are new Canada study permit rules?—Well, as per the details, new Canada study permit rules, Canada study permit can be issued for the period of prerequisite studies only. It could be a language course.
After completion of the studies, students need to apply for a further Canada study permit for covering the period of planned post-secondary academic/technical program. Prior to new Canada study permit rules, Canada issued single study permit for entire duration of both study programs.
Details—Well, under new rules, foreign students will enroll in any language course in Canada for one year. This will help them reach English/French language requirements of DLI(Designated Learning Institution). This could be a college/university.
To make things clear, consider an example. If an international student wants to do a post-secondary degree in Canada, he or she identifies the course she wants to enroll in. However, to get admission, the student must prove her linguistic competence. This is through any test including CAEL or IELTS. A language course is needed to get the target level. A language school in Canada needs to be identified for helping achieve academic goals.
Earlier, a single Canada study permit was issued for language school and subsequent degree portion of the student’s time in Canada (for studying). But, the change means a single study permit shall be issued for the prerequisite course.
Reasons behind the change—Reasons behind the change are that any foreign student may not complete prerequisite program. However, he/she may continue to have a valid Canada study permit enabling to work in Canada.
