Only students with a valid study permit can study in Canada for full-time programs over 6 months in length, according to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). The availability status may be different based on an applicant's study permit status, depending on when a program is filled and if waitlists are accepted. Review the following information for details before applying.
Application Open Dates
VCC International programs operate on a three-term schedule (Winter, Spring/Summer, and Fall). Applications for each term are only accepted after the application periods are open. Application close dates may vary depending on when a program is filled.
Applicants without a Valid Study Permit
When the application periods are open, all applicants are welcome to apply regardless of their study permit status. Some popular programs may be filled shortly, and when a program is filled, qualified applicants may receive a waitlist notification. As there is no guarantee for when and if waitlisted applicants will receive a Letter of Acceptance to start their study permit application process if a program is filled or all seats are offered out, VCC will stop accepting applications from students without a study permit. The application status will be changed to "Closed".
Applicants with a Valid Study Permit
A program is filled when all offered seats are accepted. Until all offers are accepted, VCC will continue to accept applications from qualified students with a study permit on the waitlist. The study permit must be valid for at least 3 weeks after the date a complete application is received at VCC.
