Undergraduate students from other universities who have written approval from their home university to take courses at Concordia University, or are students currently registered in certain Certificate programs sponsored by external associations may apply for Visiting student status by contacting the Birks Student Service Centre. The granting of such status in no way guarantees a student a place in a course.
- Students from other Quebec universities who wish to take courses at Concordia must complete a Web-based Inter-University Exchange Authorization form on the CREPUQ website.
- Undergraduate students from other universities outside the province of Quebec who wish to take courses at Concordia must submit a letter of permission from the registrar of their home university and Canadian citizenship/permanent residency documents or Quebec Certificate of Acceptance (CAQ) and/or student visa. Visiting students who are Canadians or Permanent Residents may be eligible to pay Quebec rates of tuition upon submission of proof of Quebec residency in accordance with government criteria.
- Students who wish to register in Certificate programs sponsored by external associations must submit proof of membership in the association and citizenship documents. Visiting students who are Canadians or Permanent Residents may be eligible to pay Quebec rates of tuition upon submission of proof of Quebec residency in accordance with government criteria.
Canadian visas for international students
All persons, other than Canadian citizens and Landed immigrants, who wish to pursue their studies in the province of Quebec, must obtain a Quebec Certificate of Acceptance (CAQ) and a Canada Study Permit. If your program of study is for six months or less and can be completed within the allowable period of your stay in Canada, you need only apply for a Temporary Resident Visa if you reside in a country that requires such a document to enter Canada, no other document is necessary. Despite the regulation, foreign nationals may still opt to apply for a CAQ and a Study Permit if they wish to get these documents.
Further information may be obtained by the Visa Departments of the Canadian Consulate and Embassy in your country.
