Important Information for International Applicants


IRCC study permit processing has been impacted by COVID-19. It is important that you check IRCC study permit processing times and understand current IRCC guidelines and requirements, as well as review our on campus start dates and withdrawal and refund information, before applying to MITT. Application fees are non-refundable.


MITT's Winter 2022 study permit deadlines are:

  • Post-secondary programs: November 1, 2021
  • Post-graduate programs: December 3, 2021

MITT's Spring 2022 study permit deadlines are:

  • All programs: April 4, 2022

Out of an abundance of caution and to safeguard our international applicants at this challenging time, as of September 13, 2021, MITT will only process international applications for the Winter 2022 intake with a valid Canadian study permit or study permit approval, and will use IRCC study permit processing times and Visa Application Centre accessibility to guide admissions decisions. Students completing a prerequisite program in Canada with a study permit application in process will also be prioritized - this includes students completing MITT's English for Academic Purposes programs at the English Language Institute.


As of September 13, 2021 applications submitted to a Winter 2022 program without a study permit, study permit approval (e.g. Port of Entry Letter of Introduction) or without implied status (Proof of an in-Canada study permit application submitted before the previous study permit expired) will not be processed and will not be considered for future intakes*. Some exceptions may apply for applicants applying from countries identified by MITT as having acceptable study permit processing times. Please inquire with prior to applying. Application fees are non-refundable.


*This does not apply to English for Academic Purposes programs.
