How I Applied Canada for Post Graduate Program and Got Rejected?

Canada is one of the best places for study abroad. Without a doubt, numberless students around the globe come to study in Canada. The best thing about canada is the public Universities offer international students to come and study. However, without a genuine information, you’ll go no near the application process.

Jumping to the fact, if you want to apply for post graduate degree course, I highly recommend you to apply by yourself. And this article will help you to process from the very beginning till the time of VISA.

Needless to say, running after consultancies will only cost you tons and tons of money. You can use that money for the flight cost and shopping stuff.But I did a mistake I applied through consultancy and paid almost 25k to get rejected.

Say No to Consultancies. They are Money Sucking Machines.

It’s a lengthy process where I gone through lots of difficulties, but if you follow the following instruction and guide thoroughly, trust me it will not be hard for you.

Why is this article legitimate?                            

I applied all with the help of consultancy and right now. Trust me, the consultancies will charge you minimum of Rs 50k – 60k just to tell you the following things. You have to do everything by yourself even if you’re applying from Consultancy.

Before we begin, let us procure some significant information or FAQ regarding Canadian Study.

  • TOEFL/IELTS is mandatory. Visit the University’s official site for the minimum English Proficiency requirement. In most cases, the University accepts a minimum IELTS score of 6.0 and TOEFL IBT score of 80 for a masters degree. But still, you have to make sure.
  • Almost all the courses are taught in English in Public Universities.
  • Not all courses are free and there are some private Universities who charge you for tuition fee. Do some research before applying.
  • 3 and 4 Years Bachelors degree both are acceptable and total 16 years of schooling is a must.

You’ll need to verify and attest SLC, +2 and Bachelors degree certificates with your copies.  Go to Notary publication for SLC & +2 certificate verification and go to your respective University Office for bachelors degree verification. They will take some charges for that. If you have bachelors degree from out of Nepal then you should take Equivalency letter from Tribhuwan University they will charge for that and some of the equivalency are free I did the same.
  • Take your attested documents to Ministry of Education (located in Kaiser Library), Prepare No Objection Letter (NOC) from Ministry of Education (Opens only till 12.00 pm). You will need this to send your deposit directly from your Bank account to the University’s account. While preparing No Objection Letter, make sure you have the following documents with you.

Where and how to apply for visa?

  • Now, you are finally ready to apply for the VISA. You need to visit VFS Global to apply for visa. As I am writing this, it is currently located in Mahalaxmisthan Road, just 2 minutes walk from Patan Hospital. Previously, it was situated in Naxal, Kathmandu.

Make sure you bring the following documents with you to the VFS office when applying for VISA:

  • All the attested academic documents issued by the particular institution, Ministry of Education, and Ministry of Foreign Affairs. (SLC, +2, Bachelors degree)
  • A copy of all Passport used/unused pages from page 1 to last. Make it a clear copy.
  • Two original passport-size photographs with white background. not the PP sized photo but the MRP one.
  • Signed Cover Letter from the application portalClick here to download the form.
  • Offer/Acceptance letter from the particular University.
  • Funding receipt. (The receipt bank will provide you when you submit your fund from local bank to the bank in Norway).
  • Curricular Vitae / Resume (Not necessary but I submitted) 
  • You experienced Letters from the work. (If you have).

That’s all. Submit all your documents with VISA fee NRP 23,000. They’ll ask you whether if you want SMS tracking service. Simply decline the offer. You’ll save extra Rs 180. I didn’t get a single SMS from them. None of my friends got one.

The sooner you apply for VISA, sooner you’ll get the Medical appointment date.

If you get medical letter from Canadian high commission then take a long breath and thanks to god 99.99% you will get visa. but in my case I get rejected due to my some academic reason .

Wait to collect your Passport after you receive a call from VFS. In the meantime, you begin your shopping.

And Travel to Canada !!

If by any chance, you happen to meet me, I expect a PIZZA from you. 

Good Luck !!
