Admission Requirements

Each applicant’s acceptance into Richmond International Education programs and subsequent placement in school will be determined by:

  1. The applicant’s educational background and present academic standing as indicated on the transcripts, and:
  2. The availability of space in a Richmond International Education program. All applicants must comply with the immigration requirements. Final acceptance into a program will occur when the student submits a study permit from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).

Seat availability is limited and assigned on a first-come, first-served basis, so it is advisable for applicants to complete the application procedure as quickly as possible.

Applicants should also keep in mind the IRCC application process can take up to 3 months to complete. Under normal circumstances, all fully completed application packages will be processed within 5-10 business days.

Failure to include original documents or certified copies, or otherwise incomplete application packages will result in a delay in the processing time.
