ISP ADMISSION GUIDELINES

Application to the PSW Certificate Program for international students are divided into 3 phases. Students can use these guidelines to meet the requirements outlined in our Admission Requirements

Applicants have to apply for a *Study Permit/Visa in order to take the PSW Program here in Canada. The application process starts with Citizenship & Immigration Canada or you may consult for professional assistance from a licensed Canadian Immigration Consultant. 

Prospective students are encouraged to start the Study Permit application process concurrently with the PSW Certificate Program application for smoother and quicker processing times.
