Default Student Visa and Skilled Class Immigration

Hi Guys,

First post, so hi to you all.

I have the opportunity to Study at the University of Toronto as part of my undergraduate degree. The study will be for a full academic year, I had a question on whether or not this would qualify as the part of the eligibility criteria for immigration under the skilled class?

My family and I plan to move to Canada and I wondered whether this would qualify or it I would need to spend some time at summer school as well.

Thanks for your help guys...happy xmas!!

Cheers,

Dave

Default Re: Student Visa and Skilled Class Immigration

Applicants can meet the eligibility requirement simply with evidence that their
authorized period of stay has been at least one year, that throughout this period they have been international students, and that they are still in Canada. For international
students, it is sufficient to have studied for one academic year (i.e. two terms or semesters) during
one year of legal residence.
Evidence of authorized stay may include: an entry stamp in their passport, a temporary resident
record, a work permit, or a study permit. Evidence of being an international student may include: letters from schools, records of pay, attendance, report cards, transcripts, etc. Evidence of being in Canada may include a residential address and correspondence sent to that address. These examples of evidence are neither exhaustive nor exclusive.
