Курсы английского языка при NYFA (ESL)

АНГЛИЙСКИЙ В США – школа ESL при NYFA

Школа английского языка ESL при NYFA (ранее Century School of Languages) была основана в 1977 году, и вот уже более трех десятилетий в ней получают знания студенты со всего мира. В Лос-Анджелесе и Нью-Йорке языковые школы работают на территории филиалов Нью-Йоркской Академии Киноискусства. Для многих студентов это идеальная возможность узнать больше об интересующих их сферах театрального, визуального и киноискусства.

Наши аккредитованные программы ESL (English as a Second Language – английский, как второй язык) помогли многим студентам в изучении английского языка.

МИССИЯ ШКОЛЫ:

Языковая школа при NYFA аккредитована комиссией по аккредитации программ по изучению английского языка в США (CEA). Высоко квалифицированные педагоги CSL помогают иностранным студентам улучшить знания английского языка, создавая дружескую, раскрепощающую атмосферу. Мы стараемся найти индивидуальный подход к каждому студенту, помогая достигнуть наилучших результатов в реализации поставленных целей.

Комиссия по аккредитации программ по изучению английского языка (CEA) была основана с целью улучшения качества преподавания английского языка, через проверку соответствия установленным стандартам. СЕА проводит аккредитацию программ в США и на международном уровне.

Цель школы – помочь студентам в изучении английского языка, поддерживая наивысшие стандарты образования и используя эффективные методические приемы. Школа уполномочена, согласно федеральному закону, принимать на учебу иностранцев с неиммиграционным статусом, имеет разрешение на осуществление образовательной деятельности от Калифорнийского Бюро по вопросам частного высшего образования (BPPE), а также является членом следующих организаций:

  • Образовательный центр по тестированию (ЕТС) для сдачи экзамена TOEFL
  • Международная ассоциация преподавателей английского языка, как иностранного (TESOL)
  • Национальная ассоциация консультантов иностранных студентов (NAFSA)

Нью-Йорк круглосуточно заряжает, вдохновляет и побуждает к творчеству. Обучаться в NYFA Нью-Йорк – это словно жить на перекрестке мировых дорог. Город становится частью студенческой жизни и их проектов, когда они снимают на улицах этого мегаполиса. Нью-Йорк захватывает чувства и бросает вызов для ума. По своим размерам, разнообразию ландшафта, людей и культур, город является неповторимым. В любое время можно услышать разные языки, отведать кухню шести континентов, потусоваться с известными кинематографистами, дизайнерами, актерами, музыкантами.

I’ll Take the Double-Double: 5 Cand >

For some students that I’ve met over the years, having the chance to study or work in Canada is the ultimate dream come true.

However, most of them actually know very little about the nation north of the United States.

Considering that Canadian life and culture may deviate greatly from the life and culture of your students’ own countries, being able to teach them about Canada will definitely help them adjust to life in their new environment if they move there. It’s also a good way to teach students a bit more about the English-speaking countries of the world.

So, how can you teach your students about Canada (even if you’re not Canadian)?

These lessons aim to provide some food for thought through ESL-focused activities you can put to use in the classroom. And best of all, they’ve been developed for students of all levels.

Get your students speaking, listening and eating like a Canuck with the activities below!

5 Creative Canadian Culture ESL Lesson Activities

1. Weather and Seasons

Level: Beginner

Task: Describing Winter Activities

Since winter in Canada features snow—lots of snow—focusing on winter-time activities is ideal for students unfamiliar with winter weather.

Vocabulary: go to a winter festival, go skating, play hockey, go skiing, have a snowball fight, build a snowman

Pre-Activity: Show student pictures of all four seasons and ask them to identify each one (spring, summer, autumn/fall, winter). Students will raise hands to indicate which one they like best.

Activity: Present the grammar for expressing what students like/don’t like and can/can’t do. You can contrast winter activities (“You can go skiing in the winter”) with summer activities (“You can’t go skiing in the summer”). The same goes for ice skating, playing hockey (street hockey or even roller hockey can be played in the summer) building a snowman and so on. Visual aids would certainly help illustrate these activities, as many students might be unfamiliar with some of these activities.

Next, students can indicate which of these activities they like and don’t like: “I like to go skating” / “I don’t like to have snowball fights.”

Post-Activity: Students will write a 100-word email to a friend/relative back home telling them about the activities they can do and what they like and don’t like to in Canada. Providing a sample email will certainly help students know what you expect from them.

2. Food and Drink

Level: Elementary

Task: Ordering at Tim Horton’s

What could be more Canadian than Tim Horton’s?

Vocabulary: double-double, donut, bagel, specialty drink, cold stone, hot bowl

Pre-Activity: Introduce this question: What are you in the mood in for today? In pairs, students will indicate what they would like to eat and drink. Students can speculate what they think the items in the vocabulary list are.

Activity: Use this menu from Tim Horton’s. You can peruse the website and show students what each item actually is. Then, introduce the following basic model:

What can I get you?

I’d like _____, please. Or,
Can I get _____, please?

Don’t forget to add “please” since Canadians are very polite.

You can expand on this activity by using this model:

Server: What can I get you?
Customer: I’d like a double-double and a hot bowl, please.
Server: Certainly. Anything else?
Customer: No, that’s all, thank you. / Yes, I’d like _____, too, please.
Server: Certainly, Sir / Ma’am. That’ll be 5 dollars, please. (While there are no prices on the website, you can use a ballpark amount.)
Customer: Here you go, thank you.

Post-Activity: Have students work in pairs taking turns being the server and customer. They can use the model conversation provided, or any other, and expand on it using their own ideas, selecting items from the menu and vocabulary provided.

3. Idioms and Expressions

Level: Intermediate

Task: Becoming Familiar with Canadianisms

This is essentially a shopping list of Canadianisms students will hear and may not understand.

Vocabulary: Canuck, washroom, serviette, candy bar, hydro, postal code

Pre-Activity: In pairs or small groups, students will brainstorm about the meanings of the words and expressions presented above. Students can then switch partners/groups and compare their ideas.

Activity: You can then provide a simple definition for each term:

Canuck: a Canadian person
Washroom: bathroom
Serviette: paper napkin
Candy bar: chocolate bar (Snickers, and so on)
Hydro: electricity
Postal code: zip code

In pairs or small groups, students will then craft a conversation using the vocabulary presented in the lesson.

Post-Activity: Each pair/group will present their conversation to the class. Students will then vote for their favorite.

4. Sounding Canadian

Level: Upper Intermediate

Task: How to Sound “Canadian”

This task is meant to introduce students to the Canadian accent. The speaker in the video below is not Canadian and provides a demonstration on how to achieve this accent.

Media: There are several videos available. I suggest using this one.

Pre-Activity: Introduce the topic by indicating that the Canadian accent is very similar to the Standard American Accent. Then, watch the video on how to “sound” Canadian. Students will then indicate whether it was easy or difficult to understand.

Activity: Students will identify where the speaker’s originally from (she’s Australian, by the way). Challenge students to follow the “instructions” on how to mimic sounding Canadian. Students can practice in pairs.

Post-Activity: In pairs, students will have a free talk about an upcoming trip to Canada using the speech patterns described by the speaker in the video. Then, each pair will present their conversation to the class. Students will vote on the most “Canadian” accent.

Take this activity a step further with FluentU. FluentU takes real-world videos—like music videos, movie trailers, news and inspiring talks—and turns them into personalized language learning lessons. Use the many videos available on FluentU to show students the difference between accents, sayings and vocabulary in English-speaking countries. You can even use the service to tie into other lessons you’ve been teaching about other cultures. Best of all, watching FluentU videos and using the learning services will help students remain engaged and make studying enjoyable!

5. Canadian Landmarks

Level: Advanced

Task: What to Do in a New City

People are naturally curious and interested in visiting famous sites and landmarks. While there are many places to visit, this is a short list of some of the most famous places in Canada. Students will ask for/provide recommendations based on the information they’re given.

Media: This is a great video on famous Canadian landmarks (say Chateau Frontenac five times fast).

Pre-Activity: Students will watch the video once. They’ll write down the names of the places they hear (one landmark’s name is in French so you can give students a pass on that one). Then, in pairs, students will discuss which places sound more appealing to them. They’ll explain the reasoning for their choice.

Activity: Students will make a quick list of things they can do in their chosen landmark. In pairs, one student will ask questions about what can be done at this landmark. Be careful to make sure that you don’t get two students with the same landmark. Each student will ask for/provide recommendations on things to do/see at their chosen landmark.

Post-Activity: Students will write a 200-250-word review of their chosen landmark. This can be posted to a class blog or submitted individually.

Considering that traveling to a new country may be overwhelming to some, visiting an English-speaking country might well be terrifying for many. While others might see it as a wonderful challenge, the fact is that any forewarning will help your students adjust more easily to life in Canada.

So, learning about Canadian culture is vital for a smooth transition. The ideas contained in this post, while by no means exhaustive, provide a great way to help students get a leg up on what life is like in Canada.

Also, the internet is full of resources that can provide students with food for thought prior to moving to Canada. While life in Canada may vary greatly from life in other countries (especially because of the weather), students will certainly benefit and appreciate the heads up.

The important thing is that these culture-based lessons can be done at any level. So, the sky’s the limit!

Oh, and One More Thing…

It’s got a huge collection of authentic English videos that people in the English-speaking world actually watch on the regular. There are tons of great choices there when you’re looking for songs for in-class activities.

You’ll find music videos, musical numbers from cinema and theater, kids’ singalongs, commercial jingles and much, much more.

On FluentU, all the videos are sorted by skill level and are carefully annotated for students. Words come with example sentences and definitions. Students will be able to add them to their own vocabulary lists, and even see how the words are used in other videos.

For example, if a student taps on the word “brought,” they’ll see this:

Plus, these great videos are all accompanied by interactive features and active learning tools for students, like multimedia flashcards and fun games like “fill in the blank.”

It’s perfect for in-class activities, group projects and solo homework assignments. Not to mention, it’s guaranteed to get your students excited about English!

If you liked this post, something tells me that you’ll love FluentU, the best way to teach English with real-world videos.

1. найти новуюб работу и получить новую рабочую визу
2. Поступить на какие-либо курсы, которые позволят вам получить рабочую визу.
http://www.cic.gc.ca/english/study/study-extend.asp
Времени у вас всего неделя для нахождения новой учебы и подачи документов на продление визы.

Возможно, есть обходные варианты, но они потребуют денег. Я имею ввиду иммиграционные и трудовые конторы, которые могут реально помочь быстро найти работу и получить визу. Сроки крайне малы.

An (ESL) student’s perspective on internationalizing the Canadian campus

Both foreign students – and their teachers – need support if the goals of an international campus are going to be met.

The following is in response to the opinion piece “Internationalizing the Canadian campus: ESL students and the erosion of higher education” by Norm Friesen and Patrick Keeney.

When I first read the commentary by Drs. Friesen and Keeney on “ESL students and the erosion of higher education,” I was astounded and in disbelief. As an English-as-a-second-language student, I could not but feel offended. Yet, the more I reflected on their sentiments the more I came to see a much broader issue than xenophobia, linguicism or simple ignorance as suggested in some of the reader comments. Internationalizing the Canadian campus is not simply a matter of recruiting more international students. It is also a matter of providing the facilities that are needed to cater to new needs while not only profiting financially but also academically from an increasingly diverse community of students and faculty alike.

I came to Canada after completing my undergraduate and first graduate degrees, in English, in the U.K. and in Japan. I had been raised in German in Germany. My English was good enough to get accepted into an English degree program, but not to inevitably succeed in it. The challenges of higher education were multiplied – not only did I have to learn to think academically, but I had to do so in a foreign language and in a cultural environment that I was barely familiar with.

I was lucky. My university was committed to ESL students and to quality education. Language support and training in academic writing (and culture) were quintessential components of any ESL student’s experience there. Already after the first semester my ESL colleagues and I were succeeding. We had surpassed many native English-speaking students in our ability to express ourselves academically, orally and in writing, and many of us were ranking at the top of our classes. Some native speakers, on the other hand, were left behind. They were simply assumed to know. Many, especially first-generation students, did not.

Today, several years later, I am not only an ESL student but also an instructor, at least in training. I know of the challenges that come with a multilingual, multicultural classroom. I see why teachers (and students alike) can, at times, be frustrated with linguistic inadequacies, diverging expectations and different knowledge bases. Perhaps even more so, I can agree with Drs. Friesen and Keeney that the presence of ESL students “fundamentally changes teaching and learning.” However, I unequivocally reject the directions they take and their trenchant disregard for the tremendous benefits of the international campus.

Higher education is Canada’s most profitable export to China and is its eighth-largest export sector overall. As such, it is here to stay, but not to guarantee quality education. My own experience suggests that without a comprehensive approach to ESL and higher education the challenges may outweigh the benefits, especially for students. Therefore, if internationalizing the Canadian campus is to be more than a short-term financial goal, if the long-term vision is to move beyond localized knowledge towards an integration of broader experiences within international/global knowledge production, then we should listen to the frustrations of Drs. Friesen and Keeney. These issues need to be addressed at their roots and not simply to be brushed away as some form of “-ism.”

International students are always catered to. International student offices provide special classes and trips to help these students get to know local customs and the language. They prepare students for culture shock and recommend making local friends. They serve students’ social lives and bureaucratic needs. Academic writing and conversation, on the other hand, are too often secondary. Not everyone is as lucky as I was.

International student support networks too often lose track of the academic needs of ESL students, and most certainly they barely reach the teachers. Academic teaching is still mostly at the purview of faculty only. I have, voluntarily, participated in many of the teacher training programs offered at my Canadian institution, and I continue to be baffled. Considerations about the multilingual and multicultural classroom commonly take a backseat to broader educational concerns. The assumption seems to persist: the campus is still internationalizing yet not international and, even more so, teaching is business as usual. Teaching and learning have not fundamentally changed.

It should not come as a surprise that faculty can find it difficult to cope, to teach across cultures and across language barriers while maintaining a primary focus on academic training. Their concerns should not be dismissed and, most of all, neither should the concerns of ESL students. They, I, are in Canada because the Canadian educational system has something to offer. A comprehensive approach to the international campus should be at the heart of it.

An educational haven for students from around the world to flock to – hockey, maple syrup, and denim tuxedos aside, there are many charms to be found for those who decide to study in Canada.

Why Study in Canada

Canada – the second largest country in the world by land mass, only behind Russia, with a population density that runs at about 4 inhabitants per square kilometer (compared to India, with a whopping 416/km²!).

Canada boasts 96 universities scattered across its urban and regional areas, most of which are very welcoming to international students. One special aspect of Canada is that there are two national languages – that’s right, you probably already know: English in most of the western side and French in the eastern province of Quebec. If you want to broaden your horizons as either an ESL or FSL student, Canada is the place!

That is, if you don’t mind mortifying winters. As with anywhere on the globe, the people are reflections of their environment. From rugged mountain ranges of British Columbia to vast underground malls connected to subway stations, Canadians and international students alike embrace what is a burden on some as a source for purity, benevolence, and outstanding standards for higher education.

The Canadian people are known to be a very friendly bunch. Moreover, along with a plethora of incentives to study in Canada as an international, the country is constantly on the brink of social systems and technology, making it very accommodating to the open-minded nature of students studying abroad.

Canadian Universities

Canada’s main cities – Vancouver, Toronto, and Montréal – are where you may first be aiming the darts if you are looking to study abroad in Canada. According to QS Best Student Cities 2020, Montréal is the 4 th best student city in the world, with Toronto at 13 th and Vancouver at 17 th !

However, some of the country’s most internationally respected universities can be found in the regions in between. So depending on your field of study, your favored geography, and your level of tolerance to the cold, you may find it more pleasing to study outside of the three main cities.

QS World University Rankings 2020 places 26 out of Canada’s 96 universities on the list!

Here are the top 10:

  • Queen’s University
  • University of Calgary
  • Western University
  • University of Waterloo
  • Université de Montréal
  • McMaster University
  • University of Alberta
  • University of British Columbia
  • McGill University
  • University of Toronto

Canada wouldn’t be host to some 572,000 international students every year, if there wasn’t a wide range of courses to study – from Computer Science & IT to Media & Journalism, Agricultural Science & Forestry to Business & Finance. You are sure to find the right degree for you!

Canada is also home to over 150 colleges that offer short courses and diplomas. You may find one that works perfectly for your aspirations. While you would have to go through the same process of obtaining a student visa, you may save some money on overall tuition.

The Canadian school year generally commences in September, though some postgraduate programs begin sooner or later. Be sure to check!

Popular Courses in Canada

Attaining a Bachelor’s Degree in Canada will give you the knowledge and qualifications necessary to pursue a career in your chosen field, or continue your studies for a Master’s/PhD.

The degree structure for undergraduate programs takes a more liberal approach in regards to the classes you are able to choose within your field of study. A certain amount of credits are given upon completion of each course.

The student has the option to choose from a number of courses offered in the department that he or she is studying in. This is different from, say, the degree structure in France, in which the institute decides which courses need to be taken each semester.

Competition is high to be accepted into most universities. If English is not your first language, you will need to take a proficiency test. Any evidence of secondary school achievements (GPA, volunteering, student clubs, etc.) will heighten your chances of acceptance!

Master’s Degrees

Up until the last few years, Canada (and the US.) only accepted students with a 4 year Bachelor’s degree into their Master’s programs, while most countries offer Bachelor’s programs that can be completed within 3 years. But the demand of international students wishing to study in Canada has increased dramatically (11% since 2020), along with it universities now accepting 3 year Bachelor’s degrees as prerequisite for Master’s programs.

Most Master’s programs take 1-2 years to complete, and come in the form of a Master of Science (MSc) or a Master of Arts (MA). If you’d like to whittle down your postgraduate degree even more, you can also choose between a Master of Business Administration (MBA), Master of Engineering (MEng), or Master of Fine Arts (MFA).

You’ll be looking at around CA$13,000-20,500 per year for a Master’s degree.

Canada has a wonderful Post-Graduation Work Permit Program (PGWPP) in place to further incentivize international students to obtain jobs after finishing grad school. 90% of those that stick around Canada after completing a postgraduate course are in the workforce within 6 months!

Want to take your postgraduate studies another step forward? Whether you have already completed your Master’s degree elsewhere, or you are currently chipping away, finding the right PhD program in Canada will come with a wealth of benefits.

Again, Canada’s tuition fees for international students pursuing a Doctorate is more attractive than its North American neighbor to the south, as well as Australia and the UK. Some Canadian universities are reducing or even obliterating extra fees for internationals in their Doctoral programs.

There are currently close to 200,000 international students taking on their PhDs in Canada, which can take anywhere from three to six years to complete.

Upon completion of your PhD, you are entitled to a 3 year work permit, which could eventually lead to permanent residence or citizenship.

Postdoctoral

Postdoctoral fellows (PDFs), otherwise known as postdoctoral researchers, are those that choose to remain in academia after completing their PhDs. Most universities have their own internal fellowships, but there are also many outside agencies that can help place PDFs with organizations or institutions.

Top Scholarships to Apply for in Canada

International Student and Exchanges

Studying abroad is not only cost effective (you will continue paying your home country’s tuition), it is also an opportunity to see the world without making such a big investment. What if you decided to do all 4 years at a Canadian university and decided it was too cold? The people are too nice?

Your current or future university in your home country may have exclusive partnerships with universities in Canada. Queen’s University offers 220 exchange partnerships in over 40 countries. University of Victoria has over 300 partnerships worldwide.

Course Fees

If you haven’t already figured it out, studying in Canada as an international student is generally much less expensive than studying in the UK, US, and Australia!

Costs vary widely based on the institution, but generally, you will be paying CA$20,000-30,000/year for undergraduate programs. Postgraduate programs tend to run a little lower (around CA$16,000/year), while executive MBA programs are usually more (CA$30,000/year).

Living costs vary greatly, mainly depending on your spending habits and if you are in a big city. You are required to have at least CA$10,000/year put away for living costs to obtain a student visa, though most universities recommend having closer to CA$15,000.

It’s always good to have a little bit extra money budgeted for any unexpected costs, such as winter-wear and supplies.

Study Insurance

Another huge plus for studying in Canada is that some provinces offer some form of health insurance for free to international students! The important thing to check here would be what exactly the health insurance covers, as this varies significantly between provinces.

If you will be studying in a province that does not provide free health insurance, you will need to make your own arrangements while applying for you student visa.

Be aware also that whether you purchase health insurance or apply for the free health insurance that timing is very important! Some coverage is not applicable as soon as you touch down in Canada. Be sure to check this out in your research.

Funding to Study in Canada

Although the course fees for international students may seem like pocket money compared to other countries, paying for higher education can still be very difficult. Unless you have a money tree in your backyard, you’ll likely be applying for programmes to help cut some of the cost.

Universities in Canada offer a broad range of their own scholarships, ranging from academic and athletic achievements to more specific individual fields of studies. It is also a good idea to thoroughly research organizations in your home country that are offering study-abroad scholarships.

As with any money-grab, competition is generally quite high. Find your ways to stand out and apply as early and to as many as possible.

Here is a list of the Top 10 Scholarships in Canada for International Students.

Although the application for a student visa requires you to prove that you’ll have sufficient funds for the duration of your studies WITHOUT work, getting a job on or off campus is an excellent way to supplement some of your spending money. As a full-time student in Canada, you are entitled to work 20 hours/week during semesters and full time during winter/summer breaks. Wow!

Student Visas

You can study in Canada up to 6 months without a student visa. However, if you wanted to work, you would need to have the proper permit to do so.

The following documents are required to apply for a study permit:

  • Proof of Acceptance – the acceptance letter you received from your university.
  • Proof of Identity – a valid passport will serve this purpose.
  • Proof of Sufficient Funds – CA$10,000/year + $833 for each additional month.

The application costs CA$150, and the process is substantially less of a headache than most other countries.

Providing a letter of explanation is also a good idea. This could hasten your approval, as it will help the visa officer understand your aspirations and responsibilities as a foreigner in Canada.

If you’ve already been accepted into a Canadian university, start the application process here.

How to Apply to Study in Canada

Applications vary depending on the institution, but generally you will need to prove your language proficiency, provide transcripts from previous education, prove financial stability, and medical coverage. Ensuring you meet all the requirements for the institution you wish to apply to is a key step in saving trouble in the future.

When applying for most universities, you will need to choose your major. If you are unsure exactly what this may be, don’t fret. Canadian universities are generally quite flexible with changing majors later.

Designated Learning Institutes are schools that are approved by a provincial or territorial government to host international students. Be doubly sure you are applying to a school that is on this list.

You should apply no later than March if you wish to begin studying in September. Some universities have different deadlines, so be sure to research the universities you wish to apply for!

Language Requirements

Since Canada is a bilingual country, courses at Canadian universities will be taught in either English or French.

Even if you are a native English or French speaker, you’ll need to take a language proficiency test. If you are applying for an English speaking university, IELTS is accepted by all. For French, TEF is the most commonly used and accepted.

Fees are generally around $100.

Comparison to UK Qualifications

As stated before, tuition cost is much less in Canada. Cost of living is a little bit less as well.

Though cost is a very important factor for most people in determining which university to study at, what it really gets down to is up to you. There are many universities in Canada and the UK that are internationally respected. Find the one that is right for your situation.

While the UK still has more universities in the QS World University Rankings 2020, Canada is quickly overtaking the UK as the most desired country for international students to study in.

Study & Immigrate to Canada FAQ

Can I work while I am studying in Canada?

Canada Student Visa

Canada, North America’s “Gentle Giant,” is the second largest country in the world and by far the largest on the continent. Its vast expanses are practically legendary for their untouched beauty, while its people are, as always, renowned for their unfailing politeness and unique blend of cultures. Nevertheless, it is not just this unparalleled mixture of scenery and sentiment that makes Canada one of the premier destinations for international students. That distinction instead goes to its rich, bilingual heritage and favorable immigration policies. As a result, according to the Canadian office of Citizenship and Immigration (otherwise known as the CIC), over 90,000 international students study in Canada every year – and still more visitors take advantage of the country’s rich heritage to learn English or French.

In fact, applying for a student visa in Canada is simpler and easier than you may think. For example, if you wish to pursue a course or program that lasts six months or less (such as a language immersion or certification course), you do not need a Canada Student Visa at all. In that case, depending on your country of origin and the length of the program in question, a visitor visa or temporary resident visa may suffice. It is worth noting, however, that once in Canada, students accepted under a visitor visa cannot transfer their visa status from Canada itself. Instead, in order to continue their studies under a formal student visa, they must apply through a Canadian visa office outside Canada. As a result, many student opt to pursue a formal student visa to guard against such contingencies.

This route is attractive because applying for a student visa in Canada is a relatively straightforward process. The application, in fact, is free and can be found online at the Citizenship and Immigration Canada. To meet the eligibility requirements outlined on the Canada Student Visa application, students must satisfy many of the same requirements laid out by other, similar nations like the US, the UK, and Australia. These include proof of acceptance, maintenance, and good health.

Acceptance: As a student visa applicant, you must prove that you are indeed travelling to Canada to pursue your studies and have been accepted by an accredited school or other educational institution in Canada.

Maintenance: Likewise, as a degree-seeking student you must prove that you have enough money to successfully complete your studies in Canada. To do so, you must provide proof that you have sufficient funds to cover your tuition, living expenses, and return transportation.

Good Health: By law, those seeking a Canada student visa must be in good health and, if requested, be willing to complete a medical examination. This examination may be requested of students who originate from (or have lived six of the last twelve months in) countries on a list maintained by the CIC .

A couple of other provisions are worth noting. Although doubtless not a concern for many, it is worth noting that only applicants without a criminal record will be admitted (and candidates will have to provide a police certificate from their country of origin to certify that fact).

Of greater interest to the majority of would-be international students is the question of work eligibility after you have successfully applied for a student visa in Canada. Working in Canada with a student degree is difficult. Under Canadian law, full-time, degree-seeking students may only work at the institution where they study without a work permit, and even then some exceptions do apply. At the same time, off-campus employment is only an option for students studying with certain colleges and universities in Quebec, Manitoba and New Brunswick.

All that having been said, Canada does allow international students the opportunity to apply for a work permit for up to one year of post-graduation employment in Canada. In so doing, they allow students the chance to continue their Canadian experience and contribute their unique skills to the Canadian panorama.
