International students in Canada: Remember to update your study permit

International students in Canada: Remember to update your study permit

If you’re an international student who is already attending high school in Canada on a study permit, this permit does not allow you to study at the university level. You will need to obtain a post-secondary study permit before starting your first term at UBC.

How do I apply?

If you’re in Canada and your existing permit is still valid, you can apply for an extension/change of conditions. If you’re outside Canada, you must apply for a new study permit.

When do I apply?

You should apply for a post-secondary study permit as soon as you’re admitted to UBC.

What if I still have questions?

More guidance on study permit requirements can be found in UBC’s International Student Guide.
