I am in Canada on a study permit which will expire very soon, and I would like to continue studying part-time. Is it possible to obtain a part-time study permit for studies?
The Regulations make no special mention of part-time versus full-time studies. Pursuant to the Act, Regulations and manual, a student requires a study permit whether or not their studies are on a full-time or part-time basis. Therefore, it is possible for you to obtain a study permit to study part-time. In addition, there are no minimum hours of study required of a study permit holder to satisfy the conditions of their study permit, unless otherwise indicated in the study permit’s conditions. However, you should pay attention to the fact that you will not be entitled to an on-campus or off-campus work permit while only a part-time student.
