Canada's Student Direct Stream Requires IELTS 6 Score

 Some international students can get their study permits faster by using the SDS. IRCC processes most SDS applications within 20 calendar days if the eligibility requirements are met.

Only applications submitted electronically are eligible for SDS processing. All paper applications are processed under the regular study permit application stream and are subject to the associated processing times.

Foreign nationals who are eligible for SDS processing are still subject to all other eligibility and admissibility requirements under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act (IRPA) and Immigration and Refugee Protection Regulations (IRPR).

Eligibility criteria

The applicant must include the following documents to be eligible for SDS processing:

  1. proof of a valid language test result, completed within 2 years of the date the SDS application was received, showing either of the following:
    • an International English Language Testing System (IELTS) score of 6.0 or higher in each language skill: listening, reading, writing and speaking
    • test Ă©valuation de français (TEF) score that is equivalent to a Canadian Language Benchmarks (CLB) score of at least 7 for each ability
