Before you have the study permits, you have to apply to a Canadian university.
One of the visa options for Canada is the Student Direct Stream(SDS). If you are living in India, your study permit is prioritized. A study permit in Canada would take at least 5-6 weeks to approve.
But with the new Study Permit Stream, Canada wants to cut down further the time required.
For an Indian student applying for the Study Permit Stream, should keep in mind some essential things.
Here’s a list of things you should remember before applying for SDS:

- You have to include a guarantee investment certificate.

There is a three-component of the application process.
