Studying in Canada

Upon acceptance to the Adler School of Professional Psychology, international students must obtain a study permit. This official document, issued by an immigration officer, allows someone who is not a Canadian citizen or permanent resident of Canada to study in Canada. A study permit also allows you to work on campus if you are registered in full-time studies.

To obtain a study permit (or a letter of introduction authorizing the issuance of a study permit at a Canadian port of entry), visit the closest Canadian Embassy or Consulate. Remember to apply early; Canadian representatives in some countries have a deadline for processing student applications to study abroad, and the entire process can take weeks or months. Do not leave home until you receive your letter of introduction confirming the approval of your study permit from a Canadian Embassy or Consulate.

The Protocol Division of Foreign Affairs issues an acceptance to everyone who has diplomatic, consular, or official status in Canada and their family members. If you have this approval, you do not need a study permit to take courses in Canada.

The Adler School of Professional Psychology Vancouver campus Designated Learning Institution (DLI) number is O19394452198. You may be asked by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) to provide the DLI number when you apply for a permit or a visa.
