Research Your Options:
Before you shortlist the universities, decide what you want to study, where you want to live, overall cost, various opportunities etc.
Shortlist the universities (about 10 universities should do) & study programs that meet your requirements and you want to apply for.
Prepare for entrance exams:
Prepare for the standardized tests like TOEFL/GRE/GMAT/IELTS etc. based on the requirements of the universities & colleges. Register for these tests in advance. While applying for the tests you should also plan for the time required in case you need to retake the test. You should complete these tests before September of the year you wish to apply.
Apply to university:
Contact each university directly for the admission requirements. Every university has its own admission requirements. Complete the applications well before deadlines and send them.
Finance your studies:
Ensure that you have the money ready for your entire period of study in Canada along with accommodation, local travel, food, and other miscellaneous expenses. Decide on how you will finance your studies – personal saving, education loans, student scholarships or assistantship.
Once you get your acceptance letters from the universities that you have applied to, choose the university you would like to study at. The next step is to pay a non-refundable deposit to the university to confirm your admission.
Get Student Visa:
Once you get admission confirmation done, you can apply for your student visa.
