Quebec’s International Student Program helps international students to study in Canada. Now, the process of applying for the program has been facilitated online.
Using this facility, the student can submit all supporting documents and post an application successfully.
In 2008 the Government of Quebec had shifted to the online application system for its international student program.
Most of the applications for temporary selections for study programs are already being submitted via a dedicated online portal. But the accompanying documents had still to be mailed to the ministry.
Now, Quebec’s Immigration Ministry has implemented a secure solution to facilitate this process for international students. The solution, a new immigration application management system of Quebec, is called Arrima.
The introduction of Arrima has not made the old way of mailing the application and supporting documents invalid though.
After completing the application and submitting it on Arrima, and then paying the required fees, the student can proceed to submit documents. There are 4 steps to it:
- Prepare your documents as per the list given on the Arrima portal. The documents must be ensured to be accurate, complete, and legible. They must also be scanned in PDF format for upload.
- Once the application is filled and sent via Arrima, a file number will be issued and communicated to the applicant after 48 hours. On Arrima, in the “Access my file” section of “Online application for temporary selection for studies”, the file number can be found.
- Create a profile on Arrima. The first and last names must match with what is in the passport.
- Follow the instructions on Arrima and submit your documents. Successful submission will be intimated with a confirmation email.
By creating a profile on Arrima, the applicant expresses his/her interest to migrate to Quebec. The profile is then placed in the pool of candidates. They are then ranked based on either a score or other criteria.
