In the know: Advice for International Students

Successful Applications: If you are not a Canadian citizen or permanent resident, to study in Canada, most of you are required to apply for immigration documents (e.g., study permit, co-op work permit, temporary resident visa etc.) at one point unless exempt. In most cases, you can submit immigration applications by yourself without hiring an immigration representative. This article contains existing resources and tips that can help you make successful online applications.


Academic Enrolment Status for International Students

As a study permit holder in Canada, you are obligated to stay compliant with your study permit conditions at all times while studying in Canada. To monitor your compliance, IRCC requires UVic to submit regular compliance reports on the academic enrolment status of international students who hold a study permit. This article talks about UVic definitions for enrolment and implications on your immigration status.

Do you want to help welcome new international students to Canada, and to the University of Victoria, through our International Centre for Students Fall Orientation Programming?

We would like to congratulate all UVic graduates, and are thrilled that the in-person events will give all students the chance to walk across the stage and celebrate their accomplishments with family, friends and classmates!
