What are the upcoming intakes in Canada?
Know about the deadlines & intakes available in the Canada
Unlike a single intake in Sri Lankan universities, Canadian colleges and universities offer three intakes. In some universities, intakes may also be referred to as a semester. The three intakes available in Canada are:
- Fall: The Fall intake starts in the month of September
- Winter: Starts in January; it’s best if you miss the September intake
- Summer: Available for limited programs and colleges, the Summer intake usually starts around April and May
Which intake to opt for?
It can get a bit confusing to choose the intake that’s best for you. Consider factors like the availability of your preferred program, your academic records, entrance test scores, acceptance rates, job opportunities and your readiness to join the program whilst making a decision.
While most Sri Lankan students prefer the September intake, January and April's intakes are equally good for certain programs. We suggest, if you do not have your scorecards ready, it’s better to skip the haste and apply for the next intake.
Here’s an overview of the intakes available for different programs in universities and colleges:

- Are deadlines flexible?
Deadlines are flexible in Canadian educational institutions but only for diploma and post-graduate diplomas provided there are still seats left in the course you desire to pursue.
- What if I have missed my deadline?
In case you have missed your deadline, you need to contact your institution and ask about the last call for admission in April and May as this might be your last chance to get into your choice of Canadian institution.
