To study in Canada, international students are required to obtain a Study Permit from
Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC). Full time academic status is
required by CIC, which is equivalent to nine academic credits or three courses
at Capilano University.
When you have accepted the
Offer of Admission by paying your $5,000 CAD tuition deposit, you will be sent
a Letter of Acceptance, which includes information required for your Study
Permit application or extension. Please use this letter to apply for or extend
your Study Permit with Citizenship and Immigration Canada.
In addition to a
Study Permit, citizens from certain countries will also be required to have a
Temporary Resident Visa. Please find out if you need a Temporary Resident
For some academic programs, work experience is a mandatory part of the curriculum. If Box #24 is marked ‘yes’ on your official Letter of Acceptance (issued by Capilano University), you must obtain a co-op work permit before starting your co-op work term. It is your responsibility to apply when you know the exact dates of your co-op work term. For more information about this permit, please see the CIC website: http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/study/work-coop.asp
International students may apply for admission to online
programs to study from their home countries. International students enrolled in
online programs will not be eligible for a Study Permit.
