Are you considering studying in Canada this year? You should be aware that certain items and documents must be in place both before and after your arrival in Canada, learnallpro reports.
Some items are just personal items that you don’t want to miss while in a foreign country, while others are necessary items that are essential to your stay and useful for your studies.
Among these items are, but are not limited to, the following:
Immigration Visa Documents (I-20) – Letter of acceptance or approval from your preferred university/college.
Original passport valid for at least 6 months from your expected arrival date.
Coverage for medical expenses from your home country (which can be arranged from a medical insurance company, doctor, or clinic).
Personal identification card with a photograph (not mandatory but useful) Education Documents – A copy of your passport and an application form, if necessary.
Originals of all educational documents are required (unopened, no watermarks or tampering, duplicates not accepted). Each document requires one piece (separate application form for each item)
Letters of recommendation – If possible, have a letter written by someone who has studied in Canada.
Written reference letters from a school official or professor who has taught or supervised you during your coursework can be mailed directly to the University Admissions Office. Provide no specific references as this may reveal too much.
Considerations Before Applying to Canadian Universities
Here are some things to think about before applying to Canadian universities:
Study duration – most universities require two years of study, while others require four years. You must choose a program that is appropriate for your duration and level of experience. Students must also choose a program that corresponds to their level of work experience. These courses assist students in matching their knowledge to the needs of the job market.
Scholarships – It is always preferable to receive financial assistance while studying abroad, so Canadian universities provide generous scholarships to their international students. The University or other private donors will cover all expenses incurred by the student during the course of study.
