Excellent News for Indian students aspiring to study in Canada – with the launch of new Study Direct Stream (SDS) Program by Canada, now the application process for students from India and Vietnam will be streamlined through a special and quicker process.

The SDS program was earlier implemented for students from China and Phillipines and now the same facility is being extended to Indian and Viatnamese students. It is also known as a new visa category for study permit for Canada.

  • SDS requires the student to clear IELTS with at least 6 band overall and with no individual band lower than 6.0
  • Student is required to provide a Guaranteed Investment Certificate (GIC) of $10,000 as proof of ability to self-support.
  • The student also need to provide proof of tuition payment for the first year

Since the SDS program is launched with cooperation with Scotia Bank, the leading financial institution of Canada; it requires a student to buy special type of certificate i.e. Guaranteed Investment Certificate (GIC) from Scotia bank, costing 10,000 Canadian Dollar. This amount is meant as a cover for all the living expenses of the student for first year in Canada. The student is required to show the receipt of payment to Scotia Bank.

The good news extends further as now the students aspiring for Canada Education need to prepare fewer documents for processing and can get their Student Visa in lesser time under SDS program.

You can find a complete list of institutes with a DLI number that fall under the SDS category.

NOTE:- Not all institutes with a DLI number offer a post study work permit.
