About the Student Refugee Program (SRP):
The Student Refugee Program (SRP) is a program that combines post-secondary education with permanent resettlement to Canada, and is made possible through Canadian Immigration's Private Sponsorship of Refugees Program (PSRP). Since the program began in 1978, WUSC and its network of Canadian universities and colleges have sponsored over 1,500 refugees to resettle in Canada, complete their post-secondary studies and become Canadian citizens.
This year again, the opportunity is extended to Graduate level students in addition to undergraduate level students, and the age restrictions have been expanded to 30 years of age for the 2017-2018 school year. For more information on eligibility and instructions for applying, see here.
