How to maka a Personal Study Plan

If you are planning to study in Canada, you need to have a Letter of Acceptance from a Designated Learning Institutions (DLI) in Canada. You also need to consider that not all DLIs are Post-Graduate Work Permit eligible. So your Choice of School in Canada is crucial if you intend to apply for Permanent Resident Status after completing your program. Equally important, of course, is how you prepare your Personal Study Plan to have better chance of Study Visa Approval.  

Here's a guide how to make a Personal Study Plan.

How to maka a Personal Study Plan

Personal study plan is a description of your proposed program of studies as it relates to your academic, technical, or vocational background. It should be in a letter format addressed to the visa officer that must address the following:


  • Why you wish to come to Canada to study at the school and in the program for which you have been accepted;



  • What is your overall educational goal;



  • Why you are not pursuing less expensive alternatives in your home country (What are those alternatives? Have you investigated them?);



  • What ties do you have to your home country that will lead you to return home following your course of studies?



  • How will this Canadian diploma/degree increase your chances in the labor market in your home country?



  • In your Personal Study Plan, you may also mention details of your accommodation arrangements and how will you support your studies - sources of funds, etc. If you are not applying under Study Direct Stream, you need to explain clearly where your funds came from and you must submit supporting documents to show the sources and history of your funds.
