Studying in Canada is a valuable investment in your future with access to a premier education, exciting cross-cultural experiences, and a globally recognised degree. Not unlike going to school in your own country, university or college in Canada for international students requires some degree of planning and financial commitment before you arrive, and while you are here.
Studying abroad can be expensive, but Canada offers the lowest tuition rates for foreign students compared to the U.K., Australia, New Zealand and the U.S.
This means you can pursue your studies in a globally recognized program of your choice at one of Canada’s top universities for nearly half of what it would cost to attend an equally reputable program at a private U.S. university.
If you are planning to study in Canada, you will need somewhere to live. Many schools offer on-campus housing ranging from shared condominiums to dormitory-style housing. The cost for these may or may not include a meal plan and or other utilities such as phone and Internet connection.
If you choose to live off-campus, prices may be lower but will include the additional cost of furnishings, hydro, electricity and/or other miscellaneous expenses.
Other Costs of Living
Student life isn’t all about studying. Whether you want to head out with friends, travel to the other side of the country, or explore the many cultural events our cities have to offer, you’ll need to set aside some extra spending money.
Some international students choose to study and work in Canada to help cover the cost of these extra expenses.
