INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

Want study in Canada? Begin your filmmaking career with our Film Production Program.

  • Study permit

    Because our programs are just over 6 months in length, international students require a study permit.

    While Study Permits are issued by Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC), In Focus can assist in your application. Click the link below for more info.

  • VISA REQUIREMENTS

    Citizens of certain countries and territories need a Temporary Resident Visa (TRV) to visit Canada. Find out if you need a TRV here.

    If you are traveling to Canada from a country that you do not hold citizenship in, you may require additional documentation. Please check with a consular official before you leave.

  • ENTERING CANADA

    Before you depart, ensure you have all of the documentation you will need to enter Canada. Most important are:

      • A valid passport
      • Your letter of acceptance from In Focus
      • Your introduction letter from Citizenship and Immigration Canada
      • Your Temporary Resident Visa, if applicable
      • A bank statement or other proof of funds
  • ENGLISH PROFICIENCY

    If English is not your primary language, you may be required to provide Proof of English Proficiency through the successful completion of a recognized English Language Proficiency exam.

  • LANGUAGE UPGRADING

    If a student meets the InFocus Admission requirements, but does not have an acceptable English proficiency test score, the student still has several options for language upgrading.

    InFocus has joint programs with Language-Education partners to assist students in meeting English Language requirements. Students can study English full-time until they achieve the necessary level of English proficiency, and then transition directly into the diploma program without completing the exam. Please email to receive more information on our Language-Education partners.
