disclaimer for international students
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) policy (available here) states that you ARE eligible to apply for the Post-Graduation Work Permit Program IF you graduated from a:
- – Canadian private school that can legally award degrees under provincial law (for example: bachelor, master or doctorate) but only if you are enrolled in study programs leading to a degree as authorized by the province
This policy, coupled with changes to Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada’s practice, means students graduating with a Toronto Film School diploma will not have access to the Post-Graduation Work Permit Program unless they complete a post-graduate certificate program at another college, or a degree program at a university, including Yorkville University through the articulation / transfer credit agreement between Toronto Film School and Yorkville University.
Graduates of Yorkville’s Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) with a specialization in Project Management may apply for a Post-Graduate Work Permit of up to 3 years. If this is granted, you can comfortably work up to 20 hours a week while you are a student in the degree program, acquire strong skill-based knowledge in your industry, obtain the skills to write a test and acquire a professional designation through the Project Management Institute.
Toronto Film School recommends that all students interested in applying to extend their stay in Canada following their diploma reach out to the IRCC or to a qualified Immigration Consultant for more information.
