    What are the new SDS rules to apply for study visa in Canada?

    Eager to take up a construction management course in Canada? From this informative Ask Expert page you could get to know the application procedure and at the same time learn about SDS rules for a Canadian student visa.

    My friend was telling me something about SPP rules to follow for applying for a student visa to study abroad in Canada.

    I have heard about SDS rules, but am not very clear what are SPP rules and so am confused between both.

    Also, could you explain how to apply for construction project management studies in Canadian colleges?

  • Canada government is planning to change SPP with SDS for India, China, Vietnam and the Philippine. As per the new rules, one should secure IELTS results with a score of 6.0 for all sub-bands in listening, reading, writing and speaking. Otherwise, they should get a Canadian High School diploma from a recognized Canadian-curriculum high school outside of Canada.
    One has to select the college, course and apply for the course.
    The student should guarantee an Investment of $10,000. This investment certificate should be provided as proof of his financial stability to complete his study.
    first-year tuition payment is to be made and the receipt should be provided as a proof. for the first year.

  • The Govt of Canada has recently changed the student Visa scheme from Student Partnership Program (SPP) to Student Direct Stream (SDS).

    Earlier the outside students were allowed to study in some selected few institution. In SDS scheme that limit is removed and students can study anywhere either in public funded or private funded institutions. This scheme is being applied to a few countries including India in the beginning and later more countries may be included.

    As per SDS scheme the following things will be required for Visa application -

    1. Acceptance of admission from a post secondary institution.

    2. Proof of payment of first year tuition fee.

    3. A guaranteed investment certificate of $10000 from financial institutions approved by department of Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship, Govt of Canada.

    4. Medical examination.

    5. IELTS English language proficiency of at least score 6 in all the categories (listening, reading, writing and speaking).

    Knowledge is power.

    Finally, in Canada, the Student Direct Stream (SDS) is launched for the students of India, China, Vietnam & Phillippines. The Student Direct Stream (SDS) Program is a substitute of SPP system for the Indian students and it is made to boost up the study visa processing, students under SDS will now have more choices of courses & college selection.

    The SDS Program mainly cooperates with the Scotia bank, one of the leading Canadian monetary organization. Scotia bank will also provide qualified students with an opportunity to buy a Guaranteed Investment Certificate (GIC) of $10000, which will cover up the one-year expenses of the student and also fulfil the requirement of SDS program.

    Now, all the Canadian Colleges and Institutes with registered DLI Number are under the SDS visa programme. This will fasten up the Study Visa permit process of Canada for the Indian Students.

    the numbers of Indian student visa applicants for Canada are increasing rapidly every year. Many bright students didn't get a chance to join the best Universities and Colleges of Canada because of the less number of seat in particular courses.
    The majority of Indian students wanted to study under SPP colleges which were only 47 and seats were also very limited.
    SDS is launched on a purpose of providing good quality of education to the most deserving and eligible students. The study direct Stream program will fasten up the visa processing time for the study visa applicants in India
    Change of study visa rules under SDS
    The most important change that will take place due to SDS visa system is that the numbers of IELTS band score will be increasing from 5.5 each to 6.0 each for both postgraduate and Undergraduate courses.
