Study in Canada (an indirect route to immigration)

Sometimes emigration through studies is the most appropriate way to emigrate, especially for those who are more than 35 years old or well-off, to educate their children in a better environment than our Arab countries, and it is a largely guaranteed way to obtain Canadian citizenship, but it is long-term because you need to study from Actually new and takes additional time to study before the actual immigration steps begin, in addition to the high cost associated with studying in Canada.

The basic costs in this way will be: • Tuition fees: The cost of one academic year starts on average from 12 thousand to 30 thousand Canadian dollars, depending on the strength and duration of the program and the reputation of the university. You can pay only part of the fees at the beginning, but it is better to pay the first year fees in full. Before submitting your paper to the embassy to have a higher chance of obtaining a study visa. •
Your expenses and your family's expenses throughout this year, husband and wife = $14,000 + $3,000 for each child. (Quebec has slightly higher numbers)

These are the steps in short:-

Step 1:

You are looking for a study program suitable for you at a university (Bachelor's, Diploma, Master's, PhD) and submit to the university your certificates, including IELTS, with an application form (about $100 or more) after you meet the university's requirements for application. You can use websites such as,, or to find the right program.

Step 2:

 You receive an official approval from the university (some universities may reject your application based on your low academic evaluation for them)

Step 3:

 Apply for a study visa at the Embassy of Canada in your country (or online) according to the required conditions.

Step 4:

 You receive a study visa in your passport and a temporary work permit (and your family's too)

Step 5:

 You attend university studies, succeed, and obtain your degree

Step 6:

 You get a temporary open work permit post graduate work permit for a period similar to the period of study you completed (maximum 3 years), for example, your studies for a year, you will take a work permit for a period of one year starting after the end of your studies, the longer the period of your studies, the better for you and the easier the task for you in step next.

Step 7:

During the work permit period, you have 3 paths to obtaining permanent residence
a) You find a real work contract in a company and, accordingly, obtain a permanent work permit, and then permanent residence after a period.
b) Apply for the provincial nomination program in which you studied (a special program for international students)
c) Apply for the Express Entry Immigration Program and your points will be higher because you studied and lived in Canada for a period of time

In all the previous steps, the most difficult steps are step 3 and 7... As for the rest of the steps, they are easy to skip with some effort. To succeed in Step 3 here are some tips: •
 The university must be among the accredited universities…/study/study-institutions-list.asp • The university must be in your field of study or field of work (studying the language is not encouraging at all for the embassy to give you visa) • The study must be more than 8 months and in a full-time system • You need to write a good letter explaining your situation and why you chose Canada to study there
 explanation letter


• You can search for a university for academic studies or what is called Community College for applied and practical sciences. • If you find that the academic requirements of the program are slightly higher than your qualifications, contact the university by e-mail and the program supervisor will direct you either by telling you that you can apply to take foundation courses or advise you to apply because your resume and career can be equivalent to the program's academic requirements or may advise you to pay Consider applying to this program from the ground up and recommend other programs that suit your qualifications. Online programs are not valid for obtaining a study visa. •

The student gets a conditional work permit (only 20 hours per week). The companion obtains an open work permit, meaning that he can work full time in any company if there is any opportunity, and this greatly facilitates the cost of living there. • The companion also obtains a work permit for the same period for the student after the end of the study. • You are not asked for school fees for your children. • You can travel during the study holidays and leave Canada to visit your country.
General advice: If you find yourself needing translation for university or immigration applications and links, this is a strong sign that your language needs to improve before you can immigrate. Because proficiency in English/French is a prerequisite for immigration.
