SW1 even without Co-op


New Member
Hii All, I have received my student permit and got SW1 type eventhough my program doesn't have internship or co-op. Will it create immigration problem? or it doesn't matter whether S1 or SW1 ?

I think the vast majority, if not all of them, are SW1s, now. It used to be that you had to ask permission to work part time while on your study permit but they changed it so that it's automatic. To be honest, I don't actually know why they restrict a small minority of study permits to "no work."
