Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) requires all study permit applications to have the Provincial Attestation Letter (PAL) provided. The Attestation Letter process requires no extra effort from students. Successful applications to KPU will receive the PAL with their Letter of Acceptance (LOA). Additionally, recent IRCC changes do not impact Post Graduate Work Permit (PGWP) eligibility for International Students studying at KPU. International students who have studied at KPU for 2+ years and graduated with a KPU credential are eligible to apply for PGWP upon graduation.

Meet Our Students

Whether you have a eye for design, a head for business, or a desire to help others, you can pursue a wide range of disciplines at KPU. From the social sciences to laboratory science to farrier science, KPU offers academic and trades programs, including preparatory, vocational, undergraduate and graduate, that you won't find at a traditional university.
