Common Reasons for Refusal:

  • Study Plan: A study plan is an explanation or document that outlines why you want to come to Canada to study. You can cite your past education or work experience, and explain the reasons why an education in Canada will benefit you in your home country. It is important to have a strong plan as this is one of the main things an IRCC officer will evaluate when reading your application.
  • Proof of Finances: You need to show the government that you can pay the cost of your tuition PLUS CAD $10,000 for your first year of your studies. Though you do not have that you have all the money available for the entire duration of your studies, the officer must be convinced that you will be able to financially support yourself.
  • Lack of Travel History – if you have a limited or NEGATIVE travel history it can affect your application.
  • Strong Family Ties to Canada – if you have strong family ties to Canada, IRCC may believe that those family ties will cause you to overstay.
  • Real Purpose of Visit – IRCC believes that your purpose of visit was not good enough.
  • Lack of Employment Prospects in Home Country – IRCC believes that you do not have employment prospects in your country of resience.
  • Current Employment Situation – IRCC believes that you do not have employment prospects in your country of resience.
  • Personal Assets – your limited personal assets may lead IRCC to believe you have little incentive to return to your home country.
  • Documents that do no appear authentic – the documents you submitted are not considered to be genuine in IRCC’s eyes.
  • History of overstaying status on a previous visit to Canada – if you have a negative immigration history, i.e. if you have overstayed previous visits to Canada or other countries, it is considered a negative factor.
  • Illegal Status in Country of Residence – if you do not have legal status in your current country of residence, IRCC may suspect that you do not intend on maintaining legal status in Canada.

We frequently assist students with issues such as the following:

Rejected study permit applications: If you have been denied a study permit, we will assist you by attempting to re-apply and strengthen your study permit application.

Gaining work permits for students: Unless specified, a study permit in itself does not authorize you to work in Canada. However, there are certain special types of work permits available for students and their spouses and partners. We can help you apply for a Canadian work permit.

Permanent residence for students: Once you come to Canada to study, you may decide you want to remain in the country. There are many approaches to apply for Permanent Residence in Canada and it’s important to take the right approach for your situation. We will advise you on your options for permanent residence and help you pursue your chosen course of action.
