Am I guaranteed a study permit if I apply through the Student Direct Stream?
No. The Student Direct Stream helps you get a study permit faster, but you still must meet all the eligibility requirements for a study permit. If you don’t meet the requirements, we won’t issue a study permit to you.
Having a Guaranteed Investment Certificate helps you get a study permit through the Student Direct Stream, but it doesn’t guarantee you a study permit.
