Admission TimeLine for Canada

Online applications are accepted in the majority of Canadian institutions. For applying, the student has to visit the official website of the university/college. The majority of the time, the student will have to create an account on the institute’s official website, provide essential information, share the scanned documents, and pay the application charges. You will get to know about the application procedure and phases via this account. Since the application process may vary from university to university, visiting the university’s official website is recommended. 

You can follow a timeline to complete your admission steps in time. Below you can find the timeline:

12-18 months before admission

  • Research different universities in Canada and make a list of 8-10 universities you want to apply to. Note down the application requirements and deadlines by visiting the university website. 
  • Find out any scholarship opportunities available for the program you want to study. 
  • Start by downloading the brochures of the institutions you want to apply to. You can find the flyers on the website of the institute. In most cases, brochures are displayed on the websites more than a year before. 
  • It’s better to do some research on different accommodation options at this stage. You can either take on-campus accommodation or choose private accommodation. 

10-12 months before admission 

  • Get yourself registered and start preparing for the language exam (IELTS/TOFEL/PTE/Duolingo). You will have to consult the admission team of the university to know about the required test.
