Study permits / Temporary resident visas
International students are highly encouraged to apply for a study permit before they fly to Canada—even if they do not have a need for one (courses or programs with a duration under six months are exempted for study permits). This affords international students the privilege of choosing to continue their studies in Canada hassle-free, should they choose to do so.
If students decide to extend their studies but are without a study permit, they are required to apply for one at a Canadian visa office outside of Canada.
Depending on a student’s citizenship, one may also be required to present a temporary resident visa.
For students enrolled in a course or program with a duration of six or less than six months, they must complete their studies within the indicated authorized period of time.

Taylor Pro College looks out for the financial well-being of our international students. Aside from tapping into the financial aid provided by the campus, here below are some tips on how to manage one’s finances while studying at Taylor Pro!
Preparation is key
Before even flying off to a new country like Canada, make sure that you have done your research about the costs of living and probable miscellaneous expenses you might incur during the period of your stay.
One thing to take note of is your intake period. If you are studying through winter, make sure to have prepared quality wear for winter. They do not need to be expensive as long as they are effective.
If you are considering renting an apartment, don’t forget to take into account daily commuting expenses. There are different rates for public transportation based on locations.
This is one occasion when renting an apartment nearest to the campus pays off. Start your research early and browse your accommodation options online so you can also think about your transport expenses.
For international students in need of additional income, Canada allows international students to work off campus and for any business or employer.
This is one of the reasons that make Canada an attractive international study destination preferred by most international students.
After securing a study permit, an international student in Canada can work part-time up to 20 hours per week during the entire course or program duration. During holiday periods, international students can work up to 40 hours.
Because of Canada’s welcoming policy toward international students, Canadian banks are most likely to offer these students credit cards. If you are one of them, make sure to pay your dues on time every month. While credit cards are a convenient way to pay for items or services, it is often better to pay with cash when one is working with a budget.
However, this doesn’t mean credit cards will not work to your favor. The best part about using a credit card wisely is building your credit history in the country. This can be useful if you have plans to stay in the country long-term.
