Successful Study Permit

A young man contacted our office after having been refused a study permit application. He had previously been in Canada for 2 years working towards a Bachelor’s degree, however due to various reasons; he was unable to complete his degree. During his time in Canada, his study permit expired and he was unable to renew his work permit from inside Canada. He left Canada and made an application for a study permit to return to Canada to complete his studies. Given his previous overstay, the officer refused the application, concluding they were not satisfied that he would leave Canada if permitted to re-enter.

We assisted the young man to re-submit a new study permit application, making submissions explaining the circumstances of his overstay and his commitment to the completion of his studies in Canada.  The young man had only completed half of the required credits for his Canadian bachelor’s degree, so it was crucial for him to be able to return to complete the remainder of his studies.  Our submissions were accepted and his application was approved.
