Munro Academy’s international students consider their homestays as their “home away from home.” These homes provide warmth and support and independence for the students. They are encouraged to be involved in family life and activities as they are able. All of our homestay families have been approved by the school and are caring, safe, and traditional Canadian families. Students will improve their English skills more effectively living in this type of supportive immersion environment. All students will have their own living space, 3 well-balanced meals per day, transportation to and from school, and all families live within a short distance from the school.
STEP 2 - Acquire your Canadian Student Permit:
To study in Canada, students must obtain a student visa from the Canadian Government. Contact your nearest Canadian Consulate or Embassy to arrange an appointment. Bring your acceptance letter and all supporting documents. If you have additional questions, please visit Canadian Immigration online. Once your student visa is approved, we will communicate next steps for travel and orientation, and welcome you to Munro Academy.
Upon entering Munro Academy International students will be evaluated as to their English proficiency. This will allow for students to be placed in the appropriate ESL course and to have the required level of support for other courses.
Health insurance is important if you are coming to study in Canada. A hospital stay in Canada can cost over $3,000.00 per day and a doctor's visit over $300.00 for a non-Canadian resident. "Visitors to Canada" insurance will cover hospital charges, physicians' fees, prescriptions and more in the case of a covered medical emergency.
