Student Partner Program

Columbia College participates in the Student Partners Program (SPP) in India and China.  The Student Partners Program is a joint initiative of Citizenship and Immigration Canada visa offices in India and China and the Association of Canadian Community Colleges (ACCC). We encourage students from India or China to apply for their study permit under the Student Partners Program.

Students applying through the Student Partners Program (India) are required:

To have an IELTS score of 6.0 (min) plus a minimum of 5.5 in each band to qualify under SPP. Columbia College will only consider applications from India that come through the SPP.

To have a minimum of 65% average on their best four academic grade 12 courses (State Boards and National Open School) or 63% average (CBSE and ISCE).

Students applying on the strength of a Polytechnic Diploma should have a 75% average on all coursework.

For more information on applying for your study permit under SPP, please see the Citizenship and Immigration Canada visa office website for your country:
