If you change programs or educational institutions, you must first obtain authorization from the Rwandan and Québec governments to maintain your exemption. This change must not prolong the duration of the training program, and consequently, the period of the exemption. Changing education level, program or educational institution before receiving proper authorization will result in loss of the exemption.
Your application must contain one copy of the following documents, in the following order:
A letter describing and justifying your study plan or research project.
The original or a certified copy of your postsecondary diplomas.
Your confirmation of admission to a program of studies at an institution of higher education in Rwanda.
A photocopy of your act of birth certified by a Commissioner for Oaths.
