Study Plan Questions
  1. Why do you wish to study in Canada in the program for which you have been accepted?
Describe the reasons why you want to study this particular program in Canada. What advantages does it offer? Why is Canada your preferred destination for international studies? Is it because of the country’s quality education system? Its multicultural society?
  1. What is your overall educational goal?
Go into greater detail and describe your educational goal. Is it to continue your education immediately after secondary school? Perhaps it’s to expand your knowledge by achieving a master’s or post-graduate degree. You can support your answer by discussing the field of study you are interested in and how this particular route will further your career goals. You may even consider researching the type of industry you want to work in after graduating and its general requirements. Keeping this in mind will help you better understand whether your educational plans align with your overall career goals.
  1. Why are you not pursuing a similar program in your country of residence or of citizenship?
Canada is globally recognized for its quality education system. This reason alone may be why you have chosen to pursue a program in Canada over your home country. Or maybe only a Canadian institution offers the program you want to study.
  1. What research have you done into studies in your country of residence or of citizenship?
Take this opportunity to discuss the options your home country offers in regard to schools and programs. Don’t limit your research. There’s a chance a school in your country will offer the same program you’re hoping to pursue in Canada, so you’ll want to explain why you prefer the Canadian school or program. You may even choose to discuss the overall differences in education between your home country and Canada.
  1. How will this program enhance your employment opportunities in your country of residence or of citizenship?
Discuss the various employment opportunities you have explored in your country. It’s possible you found a desirable job at home, but lack the appropriate education to qualify for it. In this case, you can discuss how continuing your education in Canada will help prepare you for this role.
  1. What ties do you have to your country of residence or of citizenship?
For this particular question, you must state whether you have family in your country of residence or citizenship. Family ties may include children, parents, a spouse, or a partner.
  1. In the case of a minor applicant, what are your reasons for wishing to study in Canada? What is your parents’ or guardians’ immigration status in their current country of residence?
If you are a minor under the age of 18, outline your reasons for wanting to study abroad in Canada. Be sure to include your parents’ or guardians’ immigration status. You must also include their bank balance certificate, bank statements, investments, property, and anything else that indicates the financial assets owned by your parents or guardians.
  1. Provide details of your education history—dates when the course started and ended, the name and address of the school, the course taken, qualification, degree, or certificate awarded for the course.
To conclude your study plan, summarize your educational goals and the reasons you want to study in Canada. Your summary also provides an excellent opportunity to thank the person reading your application. FAQs Canada does not believe that I will come to Canada for education and then return to my homeland to share my new knowledge with them to make their lives better. Canada thinks I have dual intent to study and stay which is reason for the denial of a study permit. How do I address the visa officer’s concern? To remedy this, you need to demonstrate strong ties to your homeland like family, a house, or a job. Solid roots. Saying that you want to study in Canada and gain valuable Canadian work experience after graduation on a post-graduation work permit so that if you decide to immigrate to Canada in the future you will have a good chance at PR is a reasonable rationale. Canada does not believe that I have the proof of financial status required to pay for your education in Canada because you have not provided enough evidence of your financial capacity. How much money do I need to show the visa officer? You fix this by showing enough readily available financial resources to convince Canada that you do have enough money to pay for your program of study. Minimum is years 1 tuition + $10,000 for year 1 living expenses. If you could show enough resources to pay for your entire program of study and living costs you would have no problem getting a study permit from this perspective. Canada does not believe that I am qualified to undertake the program of study I am applying for because my existing academic credentials and English language abilities are not commensurate with what is needed to succeed in my program of study.  How do I address this issue? You fix it by upgrading your education and English skills. Resources:
