5 Reasons why Canadian Study Permit Applications get rejected


It’s a dream for most students from all over the world to study in Canada. However, getting a Canadian study permit is not so easy. IRCC says that nearly 30 percent of all study permit applications are refused. Let us look into the reasons why Canadian Study Permit Applications get refused.

  1. IRCC questions if you are able to support yourself financially

When you submit the application for a study permit, you need to show that you can afford the expenses to travel to Canada, pay your tuition fees, and support yourself and any guardian who is accompanying you while you are studying.

Usually, you are asked by the government to submit details of your bank statement for the last six months. This will show if you are able to financially support yourself or not. Your application may be refused if the government thinks you do not have enough money to support yourself and your family in Canada.

  1. IRCC questions whether you will flee the country after your studies

A study permit is a temporary visa that has a validity period and an expiration date. You need to make the visa officer believe that you will leave the country as soon as your study permit expires in your study permit application. However, this does not restrict you from applying to extend your study permit or stay permanently. In fact, the government has designed numerous programs to help students stay and work in Canada after completing their studies or become permanent residents. In short, the visa officer has to trust that you will not stay in the country illegally after the expiration of the permit.

  1. IRCC questions your choice of program

Your Study permit application may be rejected if the visa officer doesn’t understand the reason for your choice of program. If the program you have chosen doesn’t align very well with your educational background and qualification, your permit may be refused.

If your choice of the program seems bizarre, given your educational qualifications or work experience, you need to clearly explain the logic behind the chosen study program.

  1. IRCC questions your letter of acceptance

You have to receive a letter of acceptance from a registered Canadian educational institution before applying for a student permit. You also have to meet the necessary program requirements. If the visa officer feels your letter of acceptance isn’t genuine or that you haven’t been able to meet the program requirements, he or she might reject your acceptance letter. You can address a problem with your letter of acceptance by reviewing the school documents that you submitted.

  1. IRCC questions your travel or identity documents

Another reason why your study permit application may be rejected is if you are unable to provide a complete record of your travel history or if your identity documents are not clear. IRCC must be able to identify if you suffer from any terminal or fatal illness or have a criminal record.
