How I and my Mom got Study Permit in Canada? (Iran)

After his mom arrived as a tourist in Canada in 2021, Pouria Faridi looked for ways to change his mom’s status from a visitor visa to a study permit. And with the help of Admission Hub, his mom was able to get a study permit.

1. How do they change his Visitor Visa to Study Permit in Canada?

Pouria is a graduating international student living in Alberta. When his mom visited him for vacation, he started researching ways to change his mom’s visitor status to a student permit in Canada. He inquired with different agencies but wasn’t satisfied with the slow response and lack of information he got from them. Luckily, he saw Admission Hub through the internet and sent an inquiry. The Admission Hub representative got to him quickly and conducted an initial interview to assess his mom’s situation and eligibility. Pouria was advised that her mom could change her status to study in Canada by first enrolling a prerequisite course.


Admission Hub helped Pouria process everything, from getting accepted to a language school, requesting proper documentation after finishing the pre-requisite program, up to securing a letter of Acceptance from College for a Diploma in Health Office Administration for his mom. After all school documents were ready, Admission Hub processed the visa on their behalf, and soon after that, Pouria’s 55-year-old mother was approved for a study permit in Canada.


Pouria noted that this is all possible through the help of Admission Hub. He mentioned that Admission Hub was highly knowledgeable and competent in handling cases, significantly changing visitor visa status to study permit, which other agencies were unaware of.  He also commended Admission Hub’s partnership with the different schools that makes enrolling easier for an aspiring student. And lastly, he was thankful for the highly responsive turnaround and professional knowledge that Admission Hub has, making study permit approval possible.
