Important: A Visitor’s Visa or Visitor’s Stamp in your passport, in most cases, cannot be changed to a Study Permit within Canada.
If you begin your studies without a CAQ and Study Permit and decide to continue your studies, you must apply for a CAQ and Study Permit at least three months before the start of the following session.
Both the Quebec and Canadian governments grant study permits to international students only when they are admitted to a recognized program on a full-time basis, i.e.: 12 credits per semester. Even though many of our programs are designed for part-time students, some may be taken full-time.
Contact Client Services prior to applying to verify that the program can be taken full-time.
Once accepted into a program, students receive an International Study Plan (only available for Career & Professional Development, Undergraduate and Graduate courses) which outlines the sequence of courses to complete a program within the time frame allotted by immigration. This study plan must be submitted when applying for the CAQ and Study Permit as proof that you will be studying full-time, along with your McGill acceptance letter.
Important: You will need your CAQ from Immigration Quebec to obtain a Study Permit from Citizenship and Immigration Canada. You cannot apply for a Study Permit within Canada, but it can be renewed once you are in the country through the same office of issuance.
Once you have received your CAQ and Study Permit, bring the original copies to Client Services at the School of Continuing Studies so that your student file can be updated. It is your responsibility to ensure that your immigration documentation is in order before registering. No exceptions will be made for students who apply late for their CAQ and Study Permit.
