Overseas Students seeking to pursue studies in Canada must obtain the Canadian Student Visas and Entry Visas. The process of application and receipt of a Canada Study Permit/Visa commences after you obtain admission into a Designated Learning Institute /DLI.
Statistics from Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada reveal that 350,000 plus Canadian Student Visas are approved annually. The numbers are only increasing every year according to IRCC.
Due to the increase in the number of applications every year, even the rate of rejection of Visas is also increasing. On average, 30% of the overall applications for Canadian Student Visa are rejected every year according to IRCC.
The maximum number of rejections is experienced by oversea students who apply for a Bachelor’s Study Program in Canada. Meanwhile, those who applied for the Doctorate Study Program faced the minimum rejections.
