Can I apply for a study permit in Canada after doing an MBA in India?

Hi Daljeet Singh, thank you for A2A. You can apply for a second master's degree to obtain a study permit visa. Remember, it is not a good idea to apply for PG diploma courses after MBA.

    • tuition fees
    • Living expenses for you and your family members accompanying you to Canada, and

  • He obeys the law, has no criminal record and does not pose a risk to the security of Canada. You may need to provide a police certificate.
  • He is in good health. You may need to complete a medical exam.
  • You can convince an immigration officer that you will leave Canada at the end of your studies.

People do not need a permit to study in Canada if:

The scope of an MBA in (Marketing and HR) for those who have completed their degree from Indian University / Institute / B.School / College would depend on the skill set required and recognition of their educational degree in Canada. Most Canadian companies are looking for a Canadian experience, however if you meet the required standard of the Canadian company they will offer you an offer to work.

If you do not have a public relations or work visa then you have to go through the initial process, it is better to migrate with a pre-arranged job in Canada.

Canada is a huge country and there are specific regions with higher demand for specific occupations. It is important to find out the provinces and cities where your occupation has the highest demand and the lowest supply. You must understand the nature of the Canadian job market, ie the open and hidden job market and seasonal demands to develop an effective job search strategy. Review job boards for positions and job requirements in depth and compare your resume to the Canadian applicant's resume / profiles available on LinkedIn or other Canadian job resources. Get your credential evaluation from accredited agencies.

Review the National Occupational Classification (NOC) with titles, main duties, and job requirements for general job requirements.

This is a critical step if you have generated interest from Canadian employers and there is a chance of getting an offer. The employer may need to make sure that they cannot find a Canadian and that proper steps have been taken for recruitment before offering you an offer. If the employer has been unable to find a suitable candidate for a period of time, your application may create a win-win situation. If the employer still has some apprehensions, your exceptional language skills, social skills, and connections with local contacts can help you show confidence and a quick transition in Canada.

Here, persistence and regular contact with the employer will help you show your keen interest in.

You can apply for a work or immigration permit as soon as you receive a job offer and meet the other requirements.

Don't have a job offer but want to immigrate to Canada?

Go to Provincial Nomination - If you plan to apply for provincial nomination, you must demonstrate your intention to stay in that province.

The different provinces of Canada also have their separate immigration categories and requirements. Categories, requirements, and target intake may change from time to time. Some provinces give preference to having a family link in the province and some provinces also have occupations in the demand subcategory.

If your experience matches the NOC / skill required for the provincial program and meets the other requirements, you can apply for occupations in the demand category. Time is of the essence to apply to such categories.

Alternatively, you can also apply for the higher education courses like P.hd or the scholarship program and after gaining admission in Canadian University / College, you can get approved to work as part time during the campus day and full time the weekends.

As we know, as of January 2015, people can emigrate to Canada in less than a year, under the “Express Entry” system.

Express Entry Immigration uses a comprehensive ranking system (CRS score) with a maximum total of 1200 points to rank candidates and invite them to apply.

These 1200 points are based on skill and experience factors (500 points), skills transferability factors (100 points) and concerted employment (50 or 200 points), provincial nomination (PNP) (600 points).

The higher the ranking of an applicant, the greater the chances of selection. The draw takes place in a regular period of time.

In the last drawing on October 18, 2017, 2,757 candidates received an invitation to apply for immigration and the minimum CRS score was 436 points.

Clearly, candidates with a job offer or PNP nomination (with a job offer) have an added advantage!

These candidates may have applied within Canada or outside of Canada, as Express Entry covers federal skilled workers, federal skilled trade, and the Canadian experience class.

Candidates who stay in Canada have many advantages as they may meet employers or may have Canadian experience.
