Master's student and PR application

Default Master's student and PR application

Gurus:

A 2 year's master's degree in Canada gives extra 10 points (5 for
master's education and 5 for adaptibility). Does one needs to wait for
completion of the studies before claming these points in the PR
applications? Or it can be done sometime in advance of the completion
of the studies?

Please advice.

thanks.

You won't get points "in advance". You need to complete 2 years of full time
study and you need to obtain a degree in order to be awarded those 5 and 5
points.

Don't file the application too soon - wait until you have only few months
left to complete both of the above.

AM: That could be risky particualrly if the vsa offices start screening
faster. dvse lke that could lead to law suits for providing misleading info.
You are banking on visa offices always being months behind on paper
screening.

James,

I though that I was pretty clear in my suggestion not to apply too soon
before completing education.

Few months (2 to 3 or so) should give safe margin under current
circumstances and updated education documents should be submitted as soon as
AOR letter is received. I wouldn't recommend applying several months (4 or
more) prior to completing education.

And of course all of that apples only under current timelines - it may or
may not be recommended later.

prodigy346 is an unknown quantity at this point

Also, which province are you in? PNP programs have special immigration programs that cater to students that are soon going to graduate.

Immigration Quebec allows you to apply for a CSQ from within quebec if you are one year from graduation.

New Brunswick has a program that allows students to work for one additional year after their customary one year post studies work permit expires. So you'd have two years of work permission from the time you finish your studies, which would make it better to wait till you actually finish for apply for federal PR.
