The type of documentation required depends on the program you are taking, and the length of your study:
• Any study program of up to six months: no study permit is required
• Programs longer than six months require a study permit
If you will be studying in a program of six months or less, but think you may continue your studies in another program after this short-term program is completed, you should apply for a study permit before you go to Canada. If you do not have a valid study permit and wish to continue your studies, you will have to leave Canada in order to apply for one.
