Student Direct Stream: About the process

Government of Canada has launched a New Study Permit for specific countries including Pakistan for faster processing within 20 working days!

To get this faster processing, you must:

  • give your biometrics as soon as possible

  • meet all the eligibility requirements

A study permit is not a visa. It does not, by itself, allow you to travel to or enter Canada.


To be eligible for faster processing through the Student Direct Stream, you must:

  • be a legal resident living in:

    • China

    • India

    • Pakistan

    • the Philippines or

    • Vietnam

  • have an acceptance letter from a post-secondary designated learning institution

  • prove that you’ve paid the tuition fees for your first year of study

  • live outside of Canada when you apply

  • have a Guaranteed Investment Certificate (GIC) of CAN$10,000

  • get a medical exam before you apply (if you need one)

  • get a police certificate before you apply (if you need one)

  • have your most recent secondary or post-secondary school transcript(s)

  • have a language test result that shows:

    • a score of 6.0 or higher in each skill (reading, writing, speaking and listening) on the International English Language Testing System (IELTS) or

    • a Test d’évaluation de français (TEF) score that is equal to a Canadian Language Benchmark (CLB) score of at least 7 in each skill (reading, writing, speaking and listening)


Canada has very affordable education fees in comparison to other developed countries. That is one of the reasons why college students are searching more for Canada instead of the USA. And for an international student, Tuition fees can range from $7,000 to $30,000 per year based on what and where you wish to study. In most cases, colleges tend to have less tuition fee than universities.

Please be advised these prices are just an estimated average of the tuition fees and living expenses. Have in mind that the cost of studying in Canada can change a lot depending on the enrolled program, institution, city and the standards of living expenses. And talking specifically about tuition fees for foreigner students, the costs vary across programs and provinces.
