What is a Direct Study Stream?
Canada’s Student Direct Stream (SDS) is a program designed to expedite applications for study permits for international students from 14 countries. Immigration Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) aims to process program applications within 20 days. SDS is available to those who are legal residents of the following countries at the time of application:
  • Antigua and Barbuda
  • Brazil
  • China
  • Colombia
  • Costa Rica
  • India
  • Morocco
  • Pakistan
  • Peru
  • Philippines
  • Senegal
  • Trinidad and Tobago
  • St. Vincent and the Grenadines
  • Vietnam
It is important to note that citizens of any of the countries mentioned above cannot be residents of another country at the time of their application. With a valid study permit, students enrolled full-time in an eligible program from a DLI can work in Canada.

Applying Through the SDS

Applying for a study permit through the SDS is similar to applying for a non-SDS study permit. Candidates must:
  • Provide a copy of a letter of acceptance to a Canadian Designated Learning Institution (DLI).
  • Provide proof of valid language test results completed within two years of the date of application.
  • Present evidence of completion of an upfront medical exam.
  • Prove that they have a Guaranteed Investment Certificate (GIC) of $10,000. The GIC is a document issued by a financial institution to prove that money has been invested into an asset or purchase.
  • Prove that the tuition fees for the first year of study have already been paid.
  • Provide a recent secondary or post-secondary educational transcript.
Successful candidates will receive a Port of Entry letter of introduction and a Canadian study permit to enter and study in the country.

Why Should You Study in Canada?

Canada has become a hub for international students in recent decades, with hundreds of thousands moving to study at Canadian institutions each year. Among other benefits, the quality of education, safety and stability of Canada, the competitive rate of the Canadian dollar, and the country’s multicultural society is why many students choose to study and settle in Canada long-term.
