I have 6.5 IELTS band score also got the offer letter from well-known University in the master's program. Now I have to apply for a visa but don't know which one is better SDS or Non-SDS. Please suggest to me. I have 3-semester study in one year so I have to pay 3-semester fees? For qualify in SDS category!

Yes, you will have to pay full one year fee + GIC + upfront medical + IELTS score above 6.0 not less than 6 in any of the four modules. If you can fulfill all the above requirements, you can apply under SDS.

Okay Thank-you sir,
And if I pay 2-semester fees + GIC and show some funds, then apply for non-SDS then it's ok or its effect in my visa process?

Processing time is different for SDS and Non SDS. SDS files are processed faster as compare to non SDS.
Remember you also have to show some funds while applying for visa.

Non-SDS is 60 days processing on avg. SDS is now 20 days on avg. If you want to save time then go for SDS, if you have time, and don't want to pay 1 year tuition fees, then you can go for non-SDS. Neither will affect your eligibility or increase or decrease your chances.

Can i apply under non-SDS with the same fund requirement as SDS i.e purchasing GIC $10000 and first year fee payment?
Will i meet the fund requirement with the above or do i need to show some other financial documents?

it will be enough but why not go for SDS if you have already paid the fees and got the GIC?

I can't go for SDS as i have not done the IELTS.
My query is Is the payment of one year tution fee payment and GIC $10000 enough for general study permit (non-SDS) or i will need to show any other financial documents?

You need to apply under non-SDS as you need 6 in each band to apply under SDS
