Apply Study Permit Early

If you are admitted to Toronto Film School, you will need to obtain the proper visa to study full-time and live in Canada.

As a non-Canadian citizen or Permanent Resident, you must be approved for a study permit from Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC). Depending on the country of your citizenship, you may also require a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV, or ‘entry visa’). It may take several weeks or even months to be issued a study permit and/ or TRV.

Please apply for your study permit as soon as you receive your Toronto Film School Letter of Acceptance.

Visa Requirements

When you are admitted to Toronto Film School, you will need the following for your study permit:

  • Your original Acceptance Letter from Toronto Film School.
  • A valid passport and/or official government-issued identification.
  • Proof of sufficient funds: you’ll need to demonstrate that you can cover the cost of one year in Canada (including tuition and living expenses) with a bank statement for the past four years or a bank draft.
  • A declaration that you will leave Canada when you have completed your studies.
  • Medical exam (and criminal history if applicable).
  • Your processing fee of $150.00 CDN.
