IRCC Announces New Reforms for International Students Pursuing Masters Courses

 

​ 

The new year brings cheer to international students as Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) introduces new reforms to boost their PR prospects.

International students pursuing master’s or doctorate-level programs are exempt from the annual cap on international students arriving in Canada. IRCC is introducing more reforms to help international students in master’s or doctorate-level programs speed up their permanent residency.

The one-year master’s courses are more affordable than two-year programs, besides promising several benefits as per the new reforms. These students will qualify for a three-year Post Graduation Work Permit irrespective of the program duration. The new reform will come into force from February 15, 2024.

Common-law partners or spouses of international students pursuing professional, master’s, or doctorate-level programs qualify to get Spousal Open Work Permits. A special Mater’s Graduate Steam is open for international students in Ontario.

Students in one-year master’s programs will start working a year earlier than other students pursuing two-year study programs. The new IRCC reforms will improve their chances of becoming Canadian permanent residents with a three-year PGWP.
