New SPP rules

New SPP rules - Canada - Jan 2013 intake - Indian Students


This e-mail is to inform you that the CIC in New Delhi and Chandigarh has made the following changes to the SPP for the January 2013 intake as of September 1, 2012:

1.A minimum IELTS band score of 5.5 will be implemented for all programs that require 6.0 bands overall.

2.Applicants are now able to deposit $10,000 into a GIC at Scotia Bank for living expenses. The amount will be disbursed as follows:

a.$2,000 upon arrival

b.$2,000 every two months thereafter 

This is an added value feature for applicants in India and is based on the New Zealand model that is already in place in India. Applicants who make a deposit of $10,000 improve their chances of receiving a Study Visa. Please keep in mind that this DOES NOTreplace the first semester tuition payment to the institution. The CIC will be getting back to all SPP colleges regarding the mechanisms applicants can use to make a GIC deposit in the coming weeks. This deposit MUST be made in India and not by a relative outside of India including Canada.
