    37 years age, Jan 2022 intake, got refusal! Please review the application

    The applicant in this case has already expressed his desire to pursue a career in SW development. To do an about turn and enroll into a business program just because his application has been refused once is a sure shot recipe for disaster. He needs to redo his sop, perhaps even change programs...

    37 years age, Jan 2022 intake, got refusal! Please review the application

    Suggesting that he does an MBA is perhaps the worst advice we can give him, he would stand a better chance by reapplying with the same program but with a tweaked study plan than a business degree which will have zero correlation with his career and academics so far. An MBA is not a automatic...

    Study permit application was refused. Did visa officer commit an error? Request for reconsideration?

    You are a PR in your current country of residence and notwithstanding the conditions of that residence, as you yourself observe that you are reluctant to apply for citizenship since your ancestral country doesn't allow dual citizenship, you cannot fault the VO for harbouring doubts about your...

    Any program in Canada after MBA from India

    You can, but it will be an uphill task to sell your study proposal of signing up for a pg diploma in HR with an MBA under your belt. You would have already completed modules in HR as part of your MBA, so another hr focused diploma is redundant. You could consider masters programs in...

    Aug 2021 SDS applicants please gather

    I don't think there is a problem with finances, else that would have been mentioned in the notification. One year tuition and 10k GIC are sufficient conditions for SDS. That is how they are able to commit to a shorter processing period since they don't have to scrutinize the financial...

    Best to apply for notes to eliminate the possibility about your choice of course and institute being the reason for refusal. It is indeed difficult to change college after having your loan cleared, changing college would also involve more work. Nothing wrong with your SOP, however any personal...

    Sorry to learn about your refusal. Great that you haven't lost heart. Much of the process is based on chance and with your resolve you should succeed. I am not an IT professional but going through your SOP, what stood out for me is why would you spend two years on a diploma in SW when you are...

    Applying through SDS with a partner, 10k GIC is enough?

    Change this nincompoop of a person dispensing such asinine advise. AFAIK the limit of a GIC is capped at 20k and here is this person telling you to plonk almost fifty thousand dollars upfront!

    You booked your flight before this notification (I am yet to see it) so even if it says what you say, at the time of booking you were within guidelines. So you should be ok

    Do you need to show A return ticket for a study permit?

    Don't think so, doesn't sound logical. But you could land a good deal on the return ticket for booking so far ahead in advance, never mind whether or not you end up using it!

    Spousal Open work permit or Visitor Visa

    If you are applying from India very little chance of OWP being approved given the time left for her to complete her studies and the processing times for OWP applied for from India. You perhaps have a better chance with a VV application. Do your homework and take a call

    SOP Needed for Spouse Open Work Permit If Going Together?

    No harm in writing a brief SOP outlining your background and explaining why you want to accompany your spouse. At worst, they won't read it. Include it in the documents that you upload in the Purpose of travel section

    Can I apply for SDS study permit if I have paid the first-semester fee? It seems like there is no option to pay the first-year fee.

    Write to the international students office of your college explaining that you would like to pay the first two semesters tuition in order to be eligible to apply under SDS. If its a DLI with a significant percentage of foreign students they would be aware of this and will share an invoice for...
