Frequently Asked Questions

Question #01What is the application procedure for international students?
Answer #01Please see the complete ISP Application Checklist for information about the registration and admission procedure.
Question #02When is the application cut-off date?
Answer #02NetSoft has four intakes per year, in January, April, July, and October. The application cut-off date for each intake is one month before the course start date. International students need to apply at least three months prior to the application cut-off date to allow enough time to prepare all the documents required to submit the study permit application to a Canadian Embassy, High Commission, or Consulate.
Question #03What monthly living expenses should an international student expect to have?
Answer #03This will vary, depending on individual lifestyle expectations. For example, students that like to go out for dinner often, travel on weekends, or shop regularly will incur high costs. Those on a strict budget should be able to get by with $1,000–$1,200 per month.
Question #04Do students need to buy medical insurance?
Answer #04Everybody living in Canada must have access to medical attention in case of illnesses or accidents. Medical costs are very expensive in Canada and are not covered by the government for international students. For example, a hospital stay in Canada can cost more than $4,000 per day. NetSoft strongly advises all international students to have their health insurance coverage in place for the entire period of enrolment. Our Student Advisor can assist students with the process at their own expense. Upon request, NetSoft will arrange medical insurance for students through its service providers. The approximate cost of medical insurance will be between $50 and $65 per month, and there is a one-time, non-refundable setup fee of $50.
Question #05Will the initial deposit be refunded if a student’s study permit is rejected? If so, how long will the refund take?
Answer #05All fees, except application processing and handling fees, are refundable to an applicant whose study permit is rejected by a Canadian Embassy, High Commission, or Consulate. A refund of the tuition fee received by NetSoft will be made to the applicant (applicants that registered through an agent should process the refund through the agent). More details about the refund policy and procedures can be found in the section on refunds in the Admissions Process document.
Question #06Does NetSoft arrange any private accommodation for students?
Answer #06NetSoft provides homestays or private accommodation for students through its service providers. A homestay allows an international student to live in a Canadian home as a member of the family. Students who live in homestays find that their English improves dramatically through conversation and daily interactions with their hosts. Homestays provide students with a safe, clean, and caring atmosphere during their stay in Canada. Homestay families help students adjust to their exciting new lifestyle in Canada and introduce them to the neighbourhood and transit system. NetSoft realizes that this may be the first time students are travelling away from home and is committed to providing a safe, secure, and caring home away from home. The rates for homestays or private accommodation depend on the individual’s needs and requirements, and there is a one-time, non-refundable administration fee of $500.
Question #07Can NetSoft help students apply for a study permit?

Question #08What is a study permit and who issues them?
Answer #08Students interested in studying in Canada require a study permit if the duration of their chosen program is more than six months. Once a letter of acceptance has been received, students should start the process of obtaining a study permit by contacting the Canadian Embassy, High Commission, or Consulate in the country in which they reside. Obtaining a study permit can take up to several months, depending on the country of origin. Application guides and forms can be downloaded from
