International Student Immigration Visas

International students bring a rich culture and diversity to classrooms in Canada. International students must obtain permission to study in Canada.

  1. Apply to Ashton College for admission (apply four to six months prior to the start of your desired program).
  2. Once admitted, the college will send you a letter of acceptance if you have complied with our requirements regarding payment of tuition fees.
  3. The letter of acceptance is a requirement to attain a study permit for Canada.

There are instances when international students do not need to get a study permit to go to school in Canada. These include:

  • Students planning on studying in Canada for a short period (no longer than six months);
  • Students who are family members or staff of a foreign representative to Canada, recognized by the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT);
  • Students who are members of foreign armed forces.

Please follow the instructions laid out on the Citizenship and Immigration Canada site to attain your study permit for Canada and see if you qualify to study in Canada without a permit.
