Against the general assumption that mature students (student who have got long gap years) can not apply for SPP visa program, lot of mature students are getting their study visas.


Mature students are those who are having 6-7 years of gap between their last education and current date. Most of the colleges give offer-letters to the international students who are less than 35 years of age.


First of all secure admission in any one of the SPP college. Generally colleges issue offer-letter to an international student who is less than 35 years of age. To attain an offer letter the mature students should send their professional resume to the college along with the copies of educational certificates. Once a student gets the offer letter he will have to arrange an education loan form the recognized banks. While submitting the application the student will have to write the details of his work experience in SoP (Statement of Purpose) and provide the experience letters from various organizations with whom the student has worked. Along with that a bank statement of the candidate can also to attached with the application

Reasons why visa is refused to some mature students


  • The course selected by the student do not match with his educational qualification or work experience.
  • The work experience certificates presented to CHC are fake (CHC can enquire the authenticity of the work experience letters)
  • If mature student is married and spouse is also applying for dependent visa in that case its really difficult for the candidate to prove the home ties and hence can result into visa denial as CHC is not convinced that the student will return to home country after the studies.

    Replies to personal email ids is not encouraged on this site. So i am trying to answer your question best at the blog itself. Yes you can apply for SPP with 3 years of gap as long as you have proof about the things that you have done in these 3 years. Also u need to appear for IELTS also

  6. saeed says:

    hi there ! I have applied for a student visa in sep 2010 ( under general application – earlier I wasnt able to arrange a loan letter )but unfortunately got rejection i wish to re apply as i now have a loan facility of 8-10 laks plus 13 lakh savings in my fathers bank account. and ielts 6.0 and offer letter from humber with full tuition fee paid in advance for 1 year my total tuition fee for 2 years is 24000 cad of which 11730 cad is already paid( business management 2 yrs diploma ) ….. ready ..

    my rejection was on grounds that

    me or my family member is not well settled in my country of residence.

    me or my family member does not have suffieient income .

    my course of study does not match my future goals .

    my question is can i now apply under SPP program in oct first week for 2011 intake ,if yes then will i have any trouble with my financial scene above, will the above rejection points be clarified , and as i have passed my 12th in 2000 , and have worked for 6+ yrs in dubai as a sales and marketing executive, will my gap in studies become a reason for refusal , is my course ok to my previous job/work experience …please reply asap…

    thanks and regards

    • admin says:


      Its sad that your visa got refused. Yes you can reapply for Visa for Jan 2011 session but you have to take care of the points that are listed by the CHC on refusal. If you provide all the details of the points raised in the refusal letter you can surely get the visa.


  7. BALDEEP SINGH says:

      Yes the home ties can be demonstrated by showing that you are leaving your family in India. The funds are enough to be shown for visa purpose.

  22. aakash says:

    i am a graduate in ba pass(regular) from delhi university with 45% all over.
    my eilts score is 6.5 with 5.5 in writing in rest above 6.
    i have financial resouces to pay for my fees and living in canada .
    i have obtain the offer letter from douglas college in hotel management which is a lower level course(ie undergraduate level).
    i was told that if i apply then my visa might be rejected as the level is not same .is that so ?
    the main reason for appying in douglas college is that my brother is also studing and living there with pr and i am not interested in any other course which i am getting and no other college in near by area or in british columbai under spp is giving post graduate level course.
    should i apply or not ?
    is there any chances of my visa rejection ?

    • admin says:


      Well you will have to justify with solid reasons that why you are going for under grad diploma when you already have graduation degree. Also please check if the college that you have picked is participating under SPP

    i’ll be given my ielts exam tommorow quite confident of getting atleast 7 bands. i have a query for you i completed my high school in 2006 with accountany , business studies , economics , english core and physical education. After that i did a hairstyling diploma for 6 months in LO’real academy , mumbai since it’s my family business then i worked as a hairstylish for about 3 years consecutively now currently i’m workin as a salon manager and ofcourse manage my business along with the family.

    I want to apply for a business management diploma in any good toronto college for international expousure which would really help me in india since i really want to expand my business and definitely need a professional qualification for it. Lot of these agents have demoralised me since my case it’s quite complex.

    Thanks in advance

    • admin says:


      You will have to pick a course intelligently. Since you have an experience in Hair Styling so you shd choose a similar course else there are chances that your visa might be refused saying that you course is not matching with your work experience. For gettig the admissions you have to check that with various colleges.

    Hello ADMIN.
    Mine is a little different case.i had applied [fall 2010] to the US for MS IN ELECTRONICS ENGG and got refused.they were unfair as i had the most genuinest of the cases.leaving that aside i applied for the same course in 3 canadian UNIZ as well[jan 2011]. carleton university [awaiting admit]
    concordia university [ admitted ]
    university of Windsor [awaiting admit]
    my cause of concern isi am not sure the CHC would grant me the visa because i have heared that visa chances are much brighter when applied under the SPP.[correct me if i am wrong] as far as my academic profile is concerned .kindly look
    GRE – 890
    TOEFL – 90/120
    ielts – overall 7 bands
    NO Financial constraints
    kindly have a look at my case and please suggest
    about my chances of visa approval [ i would most likely be applying for the study permit after geting the admit from the CARLETON UNIVERSITY]
    hoping to hear the best from you

    • admin says:


      SPP provides faster processing to the student visa. But i think you have to check that if the univs that you have listed above are participating in SPP or not. So i would recommend you to go for SPP if you want to process the visa faster else the normal way takes 2 months and success rate is not that good.

    I have a genuine concern. I have 6 years work experience and have applied for PG degree 1 year. For the student visa there is a section whcih asks if you have been rejected canadian visa before. I had applied for PR in 2008 which was rejected due to lack of experience in management. Now while filling the student visa will this previous rejection harm my chances of getting the student visa.

    Please let me know thanks

    • admin says:


      You will have to provide the info to CHC that you have you have done since 2003. Well personally i think it will be difficult to get a visa after this much of gap and when you have nothing to show what you have been doing since your +2


  56. Harpreet singh says:

Please let me know it is possible under SPP.
    Thanks in Advance

    • admin says:


      Well 13 years gap is too much for applying for SPP. So i am not very sure if you will be eligible or not.


  58. Dipin says:


    I got the refusal even after submitting all the required documents on spp list.

    Reason : You have not satisfied me that you will leave canada by the end of period authorized for your stay because your proposed studies are not resonable in light of one or more of : your qualification, previous studies ,employment,level of establishment, other educational oppourtunities available in india or canada, language abilities or your future prospect or plans

    i completed my high school in 2006 with accountany , business studies , economics , english core and physical education.

    After that i did a hairstyling diploma for 6 months in LO’real academy worked as a hairstylist for 1 year to get the know how of my family business, now i’m currently working as a HR Manager since last 3 years since i’m the succesor.

    I wanted to study in canada and comeback to india with better skills and international exposure now that my plans have been runied by some visa officer
    what do ya suggest now ? should I Re-apply ?

    The documents that i submitted were:

    1. Notary attested 12th commerce marksheet
    2. Ielts score : overall 7 bands
    3. Fee receipt for 1st semester at centennial college for business administration
    4. Loan of 8 lacs against FD from Punjab national bank
    5. Application form
    6. personal information form
    7. Notary attested diploma

    But, i didnt submit an SOP , Property valuation copy or any bank statements of my parents since they were not mentioned on spp checklist. Do you think it might be the cause for my refusal

    Please Help! and also if i reapply with the above documents is there any chance of getting the visa or will it be rejected again

    • admin says:


      Absense of SOP and financial statements of your family might have caused the denial. When applying next time please provide all these details and yes the previous visa application results can effect the next decisions.

      Yes you will need to sit again for IELTS. You chances are good as long as you meet all the requirements set up by canadian embassy. If you have worked after you college drop out you can attach the job experience letters with your application.

    First of all; its a great blog u have going here. I just have a query regarding the choice of course for studying in Canada. I really want to study culinary arts, but my educational background is Bachelors of arts and PG diploma in business administration from UK.I am 29 years old and a bit confused as what to do. Is it possible to apply for this course or should i opt for a business course and then change it when i get to Canada.
    I would really appreciate your suggestion.
    Thank you and Take Care.

      Well i would recommend that you should not apply for culinary course as your previous education is not in that field and it increases the chances of visa refusal. What you can do is you can apply for some management course get the visa and then when you reach canada you can change your course. But in order to do all this you will have to reach canada about 10 days before the start of the course so that you have enough time to change your course.

    I am 37 years of age and want to apply for student visa for Canada. Please advise me if I should apply or not, how much is the refusal chances.

    I have done 1-1/2 years of hotel management diploma from cyprus in 2003-2004

    Would it be wise, if I apply for the student visa.

    Which country other than Canada I can apply (If not Canada)

    Please enlighten me
    with thanks

      Well to be very truthful the chances of getting a study visa at 37 is really difficult. Dont want to dishearten you. But if you feel you can apply for visa coz you never know you might get it.

      There is nothing new about SPP. As long as you can provide the details what you did in the gap years it wont make any difference.

      Well if you repeat the studies that you have already done the chances of refusal is high so pick a course that you have not studied earlier but is realted to your field

    Hi Admin

    I have done B.Tech in Electronics and Communication engg in the year 2003. Thereafter i had been working with a national telecom company in the broadband division as technical manager(7+ year experience). My IELTS score is 8.5,7.5,7.5,7.5 and 6.5. (Presently married and aged 29 years)

    Pls advice on shall i go for 8 month,1 year or 2 year program? I heard opting for two year course might make my case weak. Also, pls let me know,do i need to submit statement of purpose too.

    Thanks !!

    • admin says:


      Your case is all good. Go for 2 year course as it has better chaces fo getting PR. Also try to get admission outside Ontario as getting a PR in ontario is most difficult
