Dear All,

I want to apply for Student Visa, and I want to know what is the age limit for it. I am 33 years old can I apply ?
I visited some consultants, few told me it doesn't matter and few told me after 30 immigration ppl doesn't accept your application.

Now I am confused ::), please guide me what to do now ?

Thanking you in advance.
Waiting for reply.

There was a guy on this board who was retired and he got a student visa to go to Canada so judging from that, there is no age limit.

This information is incorrect. I'm a 51-year old retiree (I'm the guy Leon referred to in post #3, above) and am currently attending Langara College in Vancouver on a study permit. I'm enrolled in a 2-year Diploma program and have no prior post-secondary eduction. I recently changed to a Diploma with Co-op program. My wife (age 53) is accompanying me and has a spousal open work permit, and I recently applied for and received 2 work permits for 1) co-op, and 2) off-campus employment. Neither of us has used our work permits (except for the Co-op permit) but we wanted the option and flexibility "just-in-case".

Hello NeedleArtist, Could you please tell me what documents and proof of funds did you show to get the study permit? Did they ask you about the financial stability of your dependants e.g your children or your parents? I will be applying for the may2012 intake and I am on 35 running. many Thanks

So far as you don't pose a threat to their country, There is no Age limit but your documents must be convincing that you are actually going to do the course you are entering for and on completion of your programme you will go back to your country.

Like I told in the other post

"First of all its never too old to study, that being the point my friend was 29 when he applied for a three year course at Centennial College - Toronto with an engineering degree for an international business course and he got it.

You just need a strong profile.

Hope that helps"
