Step 3 Wait to hear from us

We’ll send you an application confirmation email. Watch your email inbox and junk email folder. We’ll also email you if we need anything else to assess your application.

If you have met the admission requirements for your program and there is an available seat, you will get an offer letter within 4-6 weeks.

Step 4 Pay your deposit

To accept your offer of admission, pay your tuition deposit of $10,000. That money will go towards your tuition for your first year of studies.

Step 5 Apply for your Study Permit

When we process your deposit we’ll email you an official letter of acceptance, a receipt and official details about your studies.

You can submit that letter to the Canadian Consulate to apply for your study permit. This process may take several months. That’s why we recommend applying as early as possible.

If you’ve completed all the above steps, it’s time to move on to your pre-travel checklist.
