Designated Learning Institutions & Visa Students

Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) has released new requirements related to Study Permits for Visa students. Visa students who apply for Study Permits must now show proof that the offers they receive are from CIC approved Designated Learning Institutions. McMaster is an approved Designated Learning Institution, and as such has been assigned a unique Designated Learning Institution Number (DLI#). Visa students will need this DLI# in the process of applying for their Study Permits. From this point forward all offer letters will include McMaster's DLI# at the bottom of the letter (under the signature of the Admissions Officer). Offers that have been made up until the beginning of July 2014 have not included McMaster's DLI#. However, this information is readily accessible and searchable on the CIC website: Designated learning institutions list.

McMaster's DLI# is: O19395535729
