The Designated Learning Institution (DLI) should be familiar with issuing acceptance letters for international students, however the applicant should verify that all necessary information has been included. When submitting a letter of acceptance, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) requires detailed information about the applicant, the institution that issued the letter of acceptance, and the program the applicant has been accepted into.
If a foreign national needs to complete prerequisite courses in order to be admitted into a specific program, an institution may issue a conditional letter of acceptance, granting the foreign national acceptance to the program provided that they first complete the prerequisites. For example, a foreign national may be accepted to a Bachelor’s Degree program provided that they first complete an English as a second language (ESL) course.
When completion of the prerequisite is a condition for acceptance into the program, the immigration officer will issue a study permit for the length of the prerequisite course only. Upon completion of the prerequisite, the foreign national must apply to extend their study permit for the new course.
