All my family members including me, applied for immigration to Canada. I can't just sit and wait for the immigration visa, it might never come. We applied for the express visa.
So I applied for a master's degree, fully funded by my university and a third party. My university is certified by ABET and works with some US universities. However I don't think they have any relationship with Canadian universities.
My master's should take a year and a half, perhaps longer, since I'm busy, I have a full- time job and freelance projects. Some people in my country are receiving immigration visas within a year.
What would happen if I receive the immigration visa while doing my master's? Can I ask for additional time or would I have to quit and lose the tuition funds? Would I harm my family or postpone their immigration?
