How to apply for Masters in Canada: You can apply to study in Canada from one year before the start date. You should apply by March at the latest for the Fall intake or September for the Spring intake; although if you’re applying for a popular course, apply earlier than this to optimize your chances of success.

There are two important requirements for international students applying to study in Canada: language proficiency and sufficient finances. Both English and French are spoken in Canada, with the latter being the official language throughout the Québec province, and Canadian universities offer courses in both tongues. If you’re not a native speaker, you may need to submit proof of proficiency in the language you intend to study in.

Hence, you may be required to submit necessary documents like:

  • A certified copy of your diploma or certificate;
  • A complete application form for your course;
  • An updated CV (if needed);
  • Letter of Intent (This states your intention to enrol in the college or university and any education course you wish to apply for);
  • Language results that are no more than one year old for English or French:
    • English tests that are generally accepted: IELTS, TOEFL and C1 Advanced
    • French tests that are mainly accepted in Canada are: TEF, TCF, DALF and DELF
  • Proof of funds to show that you can support yourself and anyone who immigrates with you during your studies;
  • If you are applying for a PhD or Masters program, you will need to have two letters of Academic Reference, along with previous Letters of Employment; and
  • If you did not study in Canada, you will also need to have your education assessed with an ECA (Educational Credential Assessment)
