Canada accepts the study gap, but it’s different for undergraduate and postgraduate. Study gap has been

a common thing recently, many students take a year drop to excel the following year. Previously it was

not seen in huge numbers, as the competition is rising, you can see the number of drops rising as well. In

Canada, the study gap for UG applicants is upto 2 years gap & for PG applicants, upto 5 years Gap is


Study gaps can be issued by the candidates who are applying for new study permits in Canada. A very

long study gap can prove to be a problem for the university to consider a candidate but the Canadian

education system are however lenient enough to consider it for international students.

For undergraduate applicants, the study gap for up to 2 years is accepted and for postgraduate

applicants, the study gap for up to 5 years is acceptable. There are a few exceptions to a few students

who have shown exceptional expertise in their field of study. If the student has some work experience

then they need to show it to the university as proof for their study gap, a salary slip or appointment letter

can be taken as one of them.
