Meanwhile, we’ve briefly summarised them into four points:

Note: All translated documents should be notarized by a certified translator or letterhead stationery and the file should also contain the original versions of the documents
2. Research on, and chose your preferred course and institution of study

- Make sure you are interested in the university you want to pick. Read and learn about the university via their official website before you conclude on your choice.
- Apply online: Apply directly on the website of your chosen university and submit all required documents as stated by the institution.
- Final steps after receiving your acceptance letter
Kindly consider these things after receiving your acceptance letter from the school:
- You must make sure you have your health insurance; the coverage of your health insurance varies depending on the province you live in.
- You must officially enrol in the university after arriving in Canada before classes start.
You can proceed by applying for a student visa, which is locally known as a student permit as soon as you receive the acceptance letter from the university.
