One of the most unforgettable moments in a person’s life is enrolling at a university or college. It is crucial to enroll in a recognized university because students must pay thousands of dollars in tuition to earn a degree. How may a fake degree aid in employment after graduation?
Keep in mind, too, that not all Canadian universities are permitted to accept foreign students.
You won’t be qualified to apply for a study permit if the institution where you want to enroll is not authorized to admit foreign students. Every year, as thousands of international students search for better higher education possibilities, con artists, con artists, or cunning education advisors strive to deceive international students.
So, before you apply to any university, make sure it is on the Designated Learning Institute list: https://www.canada.ca/en/immigration-refugees-citizenship/services/study-canada/study-permit/prepare/designated-learning-institutions-list.html
Additionally, at least one “Career” college that is listed on the DLI offers a credential that is virtually useless. Always look out information on the school’s industry recognition and/or recommendations. You cannot continue your studies in that field without starting again, if it isn’t accepted by other educational institutions.
BEWARE OF FRAUD
Numerous international students fall prey to scam every year via websites, emails, phone calls, and social media. For cash and personal information, con artists will make fictitious promises like “assured admittance into Canada” or “scholarships to study in Canada.”
All Government of Canada scholarship programmes are currently free to apply for, and the application process is normally carried out online through forms published on Government of Canada websites. In order to submit an application, Canadian authorities will never demand payment in cash, wire transfers, prepaid gift cards, or e-transfers via a particular private money transfer business.
STUDY ABROAD AGENTS/CONSULTANTS
To assist them get ready for studying in Canada, some overseas students and their parents may decide to work with an education agency. The Canadian government does not qualify, accredit, warrant, or recommend any specific agent. We advise you to look into the credentials, background and skills of the agent.
SIGNS OF FRAUD
Fraud detection is not always simple. Here are a few things to look for:
- You are approached with a demand for payment in order to access or finish an application procedure.
- Someone contacts you over social media and requests that you provide them paperwork, private information, or money.
- Someone promises you admittance into Canada, a sizable sum of money, a well-paying job, or quicker application processing.
- Without much knowledge, there is a sense of hurry and pressure to act right away.
- Although the email or webpage appears to be real, the text has spelling and grammar mistakes.
The Indian High Commission in Ottawa, Canada urged the students from India, ‘to make thorough checks for credentials and standing of the institution’, when they are applying for higher studies in Canada.
It also asked the students to not make payments to any unverified person/institution that is offering them student visa on payment.
The immigration industry comprises of both honest and fraudulent professionals. The dishonest ones strive to gain wealth by whatever means necessary. It makes sense that they could lead students looking for a study visa to Canada astray. The best defence against ineffective representatives or immigration fraud is to choose a consultant with a successful track record.
