Study abroad with EduNational's International Scholars Program
Guidance & Support

and students by providing a full suite of services to realize their dream to study
abroad. Whether students wish to come to school to learn English, or to complete
high-school or to start university or college, International Scholars Program (ISP)
staff help simplify the process by doing most of the preparation, research and
applications for them. This is how workable it really is today:

the Workplan, consideration is given for processing times demanded by Citizenship
and Immigration Canada for Student Permits and Temporary (entry/exit) visas.
EduNational helps to get your original documents translated, and notarized. Our
skilled translators accurately translate your documents, such as school transcripts,

Students wishing to go to high school in Canada must begin the registration process
with EduNational between January and April, for a September start date in the same

require two Canadian-issued documents to allow them to stay and study in Canada:
(a) Temporary Resident Visa (to enter and exit Canada) and (b) Student Permit

documents and information that assists in preparing for their journey, provides tips
