International Students

International Student Information


Please Note: International Applicants for the Seminary Formation Program must first apply and be accepted formationally before they can apply to the academic program.

Anyone wishing to study in Canada who is not a Canadian citizen or permanent resident must obtain a Study Permit and in some cases a Temporary Resident Visa (Entry Visa) before entering Canada. Prospective students should contact the nearest Canadian Embassy, High Commission or Consulate as soon as they receive their offer of admission. Delays at Embassies and Consulates are now common and should be taken into account when seeking Student Visas and Study Permits.


Application forms and guidelines for the initial Study Permit can be downloaded from the Citizenship and Immigration Canada [CIC] website at .


More details about Immigration procedures are available on the University of Toronto’s Centre for International Experience website:



St. Augustine’s Seminary may be required to submit attendance and/or proof of advancing in the program for all international students to the federal government, subject to any applicable privacy legislation requirements. Accepted applicants are required to complete and return the Notice of Collection of Personal Information and Consent form. Receipt of this form by St. Augustine’s is required to proceed and retain student's enrolment.


Academic Required Documents

All students must have official transcripts sent directly to St. Augustine’s Seminary. International Students should know it is to their advantage to contact their post-secondary institutions while they are still in their home country.

In addition, international students must provide further documentation about their post-secondary institutions. In most cases, international students who receive Bachelor degrees from Universities and/or Colleges outside North America are required to present supporting documentation about the Faculty and Course Curriculum. The credentials of the teaching faculty should include the degrees obtained and courses taught. Detailed course descriptions and the number of credit semester hours are valuable; a prospectus or bulletin of the institution should contain this necessary information.

The supporting documentation as well as the Official Transcripts should be signed and/or sealed by the institution and sent directly to St. Augustine’s Seminary to the attention of the Registrar.


All changes to immigration status should be reported to the Registrar.
