University of Canada West (UCW) is providing an exciting offer of free internet service to its students studying online from India.

COVID-19 has changed many aspects of our everyday life. It has even changed how education is delivered. UCW students are studying from home and not everyone has a reliable internet connection to access their classes. In order to give its students the best chance to succeed, UCW has partnered with a local Indian internet provider to supply a free internet connection for students during their first term with UCW. UCW students in India may be eligible to receive a Wi-Fi dongle that comes with free internet service so they can excel in their studies.

This offer is available to UCW students who do not have access to high speed internet and are starting their studies in the Fall (October) 2020 Term, but there may be geographical limitations. The university internet partner in India will contact the students to carry out a basic internet speed test to assess if they can use this offer. Not all areas in India will be able to access this service. For those unable to access this service, the university internet partner will help troubleshoot and give advice about their current internet set up.

The university is also offering a $650 hotel voucher to students who are required by the federal government to self-isolate for their first 14 days in Canada. The vouchers are valid for new students starting their UCW program in the Fall (October) 2020 Term, either face-to-face in Canada or online, and arriving within 3 months after the travel restrictions are lifted. Some terms and conditions may apply.
Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada has made a number of temporary policy changes intended to support international students affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, including:

Applying for a study permit

Students who have submitted a complete application will receive priority processing and will be ready to travel to Canada soon after travel restrictions are modified.

IRCC has introduced 2-stage study permit processing for students who can’t submit a complete application. This includes a first-stage eligibility assessment and a final decision based on admissibility requirements in the second stage.

This allows applicants who have been unable to provide biometrics, police certificates or the results of an immigration medical examination to get an initial assessment. If approved they can feel reassured that they have already met most of the criteria for a study permit.

IRCC aims to process all first-stage eligibility assessments before the start of the fall semester. When a student is approved through both stages, they will be ready to travel to Canada once travel restrictions are modified.

Eligibility for the Post-Graduation Work Permit Program

Students can study online from abroad until April 30, 2021, without affecting their eligibility or the length of a future post-graduation work permit, provided they are able to complete at least 50% of their program in Canada.

Students enrolled in programs between 8 and 12 months in length that started during the spring, summer or fall terms (from May to September) of 2020 will be able to apply for a post-graduation work permit if they complete their entire program outside of Canada.

Students enrolled in a program with a start date from May to September 2020 who study online up to April 30, 2021, and who graduate from more than one eligible program of study, may be able to combine the length of their programs of study when they apply for a post-graduation work permit in the future, as long as 50% of their total studies are completed in Canada.

Students already in Canada

Students in Canada in the winter, spring and summer terms who were forced to study online, reduce their studies to part-time, or take a break from their studies completely, as a result of restrictions on classroom learning due to the COVID-19 pandemic, are allowed to continue working on- or off-campus if their study permit allows it.

Students already in Canada for the winter, spring and summer terms were assured that they wouldn’t lose their eligibility for a post-graduation work permit if they were forced to complete more than 50% of their program online, reduce their studies to part-time or take a break from their studies completely as a result of restrictions on classroom learning due to the pandemic.

Until August 31, 2020, international students are permitted to work more than 20 hours per week off-campus during their academic session if they are employed in an essential service or function. For more information

International students make immense cultural and social contributions to Canada, and generate more than $21 billion in economic activity. Since the onset of the pandemic, the Honourable Marco E. L. Mendicino, Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship, has made a number of temporary policy changes to support and reassure international students and learning institutions.

As the fall season is fast approaching, the Minister has announced additional measures to support international students beginning a new program online this fall with a Canadian learning institution, if their institution is offering the program online, so that they can pursue their education while ensuring everyone’s safety. These changes will give students more certainty about their ability to enter Canada once travel and health restrictions are eased in Canada and their own home countries. They mean that students will be eligible to work in Canada after graduation, even if they need to begin their studies online from overseas this fall..

International students would be allowed to come to Australia under an approved plan to study at nominated institutions as the Prime Minister Scott Morrison discussed the pilot plan with a National Cabinet meeting in Canberra. International students have been Australia’s most lucrative industry after mining. The students would return to Australia in a very planned and controlled manner. Well thought-through proposals had been forwarded by State Government on how their could be achieved. However, all this will happen with appropriate quarantine entry arrangements and bio security.
