Insights into IRCC's Proposed Trusted Institutions Framework

#studentvisa #university

The immigration environment in Canada is changing, and Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) is leading the way with the introduction of its new "Trusted Institutions Framework."  In this blog post, we delve into the main points and ramifications of this novel strategy.

A Two-Tier Model for Study Permits

IRCC is looking into a two-tier system for issuing research permits. This methodology could lead to quicker study permit processing for designated learning institutions (DLIs), such as colleges and universities. To qualify for these benefits, DLIs must adhere to the IRCC's Trusted Institutions Framework requirements.

As per the CIC News, Faster study permit processing for overseas students enrolled on DLIs that meet the IRCC's Trusted Institutions Framework standards would be advantageous. 

In order to determine if DLIs are trustworthy partners in terms of sustainable intake, authentic student identification, compliance monitoring, and offering an enjoyable and safe experience for international students, the Trusted Institutions Framework evaluates DLIs according to a set of criteria.


Proposed Indicators for Assessment

The proposed indicators that IRCC is taking into consideration to evaluate DLIs are as follows, according to CIC News:'

International students in Canada - IRCC Proposed Trusted Institutions Framework

Retention rates

Measuring the proportion of foreign students who continue in their original course of study after their first year in Canada.

On-time program completion rate 

Determining the proportion of foreign students who complete their programmes within the stated study period.

Percentage of revenue from international tuition

figuring out what percentage of a DLI's overall tuition income comes from international students.

Scholarships for international students from less developed countries

Evaluating the amount and share of scholarships given to students from the UN's least developed countries.

Financial aid for international students

Determining the worth of support services, such as career and mental health counselling, for each international student.

Availability of DLI-administered housing for international students

Calculating the proportion of international students who live in accommodation that is managed by the school.

Student-teacher ratio 

The ratio for the top 10 courses with the largest percentage of overseas students.

The Trusted Institutions Framework will create a thorough evaluation system that will motivate DLIs to excel in these essential areas.

The Canadian government will also provide information to IRCC, such as approval rates for study permits, nationalities, and post-graduation student results. The objective is to establish the initial list of Trusted Institutions by spring 2024, and it is planned to start gathering and analysing data from all DLIs in the upcoming months.

The number of international students studying in Canada is at an all-time high. Housing and system integrity issues have emerged, nevertheless. While there has been discussion of limiting international students to solve housing challenges, IRCC stresses the significance of striking a balance between both issues.

The Canadian educational environment is set to change as a result of the Trusted Institutions Framework, which will raise the standard and dependability of foreign education providers operating there.


What is the Trusted Institutions Framework proposed by IRCC?

In order to increase the credibility of Canada's international student programme, Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) has proposed the Trusted Institutions Framework, which would establish a two-tier paradigm for the issue of study permits.

What standards will be used to evaluate DLIs under the Trusted Institutions Framework?

The evaluation of DLIs will be based on factors such as sustainable intake, recognising real students, compliance monitoring, and offering an enriching and safe learning environment for international students.
