Sample SOP For Canada Student Visa



 The Visa Officer,

Canadian Consulate General,


Sub: [Application for Canada Study Permit..reg]

                   Sir / Madam,

                                Greetings of the day! I, (Your Name), have received admission to study the two-year Post-Graduate certificate program in Computer Science at St. Lawrence College, Ontario, Canada, which is scheduled to start from January 15, 2022. I would like to present my details, objectives, my career ambitions through this Statement of Purpose.

Business administration is such a field upon which the entire buzz of the futures prospect is dependent on Business which is encompassing the world. It has been my passion ever since I caught an idea about how revolutionary it is.

Apart from being an impressively performing student since the beginning of my educational saga, I never failed in showcasing immense interest in the fundamentals which would fetch me a commanding grip over the subject.

My academics might appear disappointing on the whole, but as an enthusiastic student, I have always been more inclined towards the learning process. The zeal to earn mastery in Business is the reason to choose the Business Administration stream as my major in my bachelor's program.

Apart from performing as expected, one thing that needs some light to be thrown upon is my consistency. I performed very consistently throughout my education so far.

I cleared my 10th grade with a percentage of 85.6%. I then moved on to my 12th grade and passed out of it with an aggregate of 85.1%. Then as aforementioned, I proceeded forward to my bachelor's program in B-Pharmacy and successfully finished it in time with a percentage of 69.9%.

I have finished my Masters degree in Information Assurance with a GPA of 3.56 showing a slow and steady improvement in my performance through the years and my figures reveal that fact.

I am done with my Masters program. After pursuing my master's, I have worked as a software developer for a couple of years. In my years of experience, it made me clear that understanding the business concepts is a major criterion for the development of any organization and me.

 I have decided to plan to shape my further studies and career in such a way that I turn out to be a thorough professional in the field which awes me the most.

 For this, the obvious choice turns out to be Canada for its excellent amenities in education. The importance given to education in Canada is reflected in the standards its universities maintain. Prominently, University Canada West tops the list. Why University Canada West?

Firstly, University Canada West is a great place to study because of the cultural diversity it maintains with students all across the world. University can be treated as a revelation bringer in the area of scientific and technical research.

It went against the tide and created a special niche for itself in incorporating an extraordinary research wing, which collaborates with other universities as well as respective industries to provide its students with maximum exposure possible.

Be it Research or Education or Industry Exposure or whatever, University Canada West secured a place for itself on the top of the list of best universities.

All these facts about University Canada west benefit me the most. I can get benefited to the fullest extent. Matching to my curiosity and interest in the field of MBA, UCW’s infrastructure gets synced perfectly and establishes a mutual symbiosis.

I am sure UCW would not be disappointed to have me on its campus and I undoubtedly will be one of the luckiest persons to get an admission from UCW.

This is because I believe despite my mediocre performance so far; I would go to any heights to prove that I am passionate about my interested field and would contribute in all possible forms to appease UCW in recruiting me.

Frequently Asked Questions

The common notion is that foreign universities are expensive, although with scholarships this is an exaggerated issue. What many fail to consider are time and effort. Studying in an Indian college leads to a lower average salary than earned by our western counterparts. This salary sets the tone for all future promotions since companies often look at your previous salaries during compensation appraisals. Additionally, most senior positions tend to be scooped up by individuals who have an international outlook through global exposure.  Finally, studying in a foreign country is an incredible learning experience helping students get a better academic as well as soft skill development.

Canada has been one of the market leaders in education for decades. However, what currently sets Maple Country apart is immigration.

A good score doesn’t automatically qualify a candidate for a scholarship, however, it is one of the primary factors that the admissions department looks for in a scholarship application. There are other attributes such as a candidate’s academics, extra-curricular, financial background, and application essays (SOPs).

We get this question a lot. Many candidates know which career path they want to take, but are at a loss for how to take that journey. Understanding the job role and the industry that you want to get into is the first step to picking the right university.

Carefully consider the immigration options of the country that the university that you are considering is in. This is more important when you intend to stay back in the country after the completion of your course.

Also, review the placement history of the university as well.

The first step is to list your preferences. By listing your preferences and strengths, describe your course of preference. Extensive research on the modules, software and its length for your preferred subject is necessary.
