Apply for a Study Permit

When you have received your official letter of acceptance to the University of Alberta, you should immediately begin procedures to obtain a Study Permit. A Temporary Resident Visa may also be required. These documents are available from the nearest Canadian visa office (embassy, high commission or consulate).

For information on Study Permits, visit the Citizenship & Immigration Canada website.

The U of A International Centre has information on applying for a Study Permit on the Centre's website. If you need to renew a Study Permit, please visit this website.
