Eligibility Criteria

Find out if you are eligible to study in Canada

Most foreign nationals need a study permit to study in Canada. You must apply before you travel and make sure you have all the documents we need before you apply.

The study permit is a document we issue that allows foreign nationals to study at designated learning institutions (DLI) in Canada.

While studying in Canada under a study permit you must:

  • always be enrolled at a DLI
  • make progress towards completing your program
  • respect any conditions listed on your study permit
  • stop studying if you no longer meet the requirements and
  • leave Canada when your permit expires

Depending on your case, there may be conditions on your study permit such as:

  • the level of studies you can attend
  • if you are allowed to work in Canada
  • if you can’t travel within Canada
  • the date you must stop studying

The general criteria for application are mentioned below:

English Requirements

  • The minimum TOEFL score required by most universities is 80-84(internet-based test) for PG courses.
  • Most universities and colleges accept equivalent IELTS and PTE Academic scores.

Undergraduate study in Canada

  • Universities in Quebec require a minimum 13 years of secondary school education, i.e. an additional year of formal education after the 12th standard or intermediate degree. Most others require a minimum 12 years of elementary and secondary education. However, if your academic credentials are very impressive, some universities may consider your application even with 12 years of education.
  • Minimum aggregate marks of 70% are the 12th grade for bachelor’s degrees, and above 50% for diplomas and advanced diplomas.
  • Mathematics in class XII (a prerequisite for some sciences, technology, and business courses).
  • Minimum required IELTS/PTE Academic scores with an overall score of 6.0 bands or equivalent PTE scores

Masters in Canada

  • Most universities require a qualification equivalent to the Canadian bachelor’s degree, which requires 16 years of formal education. It would mean another year of education after Indian bachelors or a four-year bachelor’s degree course in B.E., B.Tech. Or other such courses.
  • Minimum required IELTS / PTE Academic scores with the minimum score of 6.5 bands as an overall score for PG Diploma and 7.0 bands for master’s degree. Some universities accept equivalent PTE scores too.
  • Relevant work experience (some universities require this for MBA and Master’s Degree in IT)

Doctorate in Canada:

  • For doctorate programmes, most universities require a master’s degree in that subject. However, universities might consider your application without a master’s degree in exceptional cases.
