Most post-secondary students can choose to change their educational institution
, their program of study and/or their field of study, without the need to
apply for a new study permit. This also applies to students at
post-secondary level who decide to change their level of education (i.e., from a bachelor’s degree to
a master’s degree). To verify the conditions with respect to certain particularities and restrictions imposed on the
holder, please refer to the terms and conditions of your study permit.
In the event that a student chooses to transfer to a school, college or university
in Quebec, then they will need to apply for a CAQ, and if necessary, apply
for a new study permit.
Elementary students who will be entering secondary school, as well as
secondary students who will be entering post-secondary school, must apply to change their
study permit. Students who change educational institutions must inform the IRCC
of these changes.
