Entry requirements and funding

Entry requirements and funding

Entry requirements for studying at Canada College vary depending on the specific program of choice. As a bilingual college, students must show some proficiency in English or French to pursue their studies. Proof of high school diploma or equivalent academic qualifications recognised by the Ministry of Immigration, Françisation and Integration (M.I.C.C.) is required.

Some programs require students to complete a short test if they have no previous experience in that specific field of study, for example computer science. Documents required for admission to Canada College include a CV, birth certificate, passport, proof of language proficiency and copies of a student's diploma and transcripts.

Student authorization

For students looking to study a language course that is less than six months, student permits are not required as a temporary visitor visa will suffice. Those students interested in studying for longer than six months will need to apply for student authorization at the closest Canadian Embassy/Consulate or online before travelling to Canada. To successfully apply for this visa, students will need to provide an acceptance letter from the college. Students may also be asked to complete a medical examination if they intend to study for more than 24 weeks.

Scholarships and funding

As with all international study experiences, students are required to cover the costs of tuition, housing and personal needs. All students attending Canada College must be able to prove they can support themselves financially whilst their student authorization is in the process of being issued. This may mean needing to provide financial information from a bank or guarantor, such as parents or guardians that will be providing financial support.
