Cost of study and living in Canada

Canada is among the most affordable of the leading study abroad nations for international students. It has lower tuition rates for foreign students than the UK, Australia, and the US. Students can pursue their studies in a globally recognized program at one of Canada’s top schools for less than half of what it would cost to attend an equally reputable program at a private US university or college. The student should carefully select the universities best suited for his budget along with the living cost he will incur while studying there. The total cost of education would range from CDNv$18,000 to CDN $40,000.

Accommodation: 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

Scholarships: There are many scholarships and opportunities for financial assistance available for international students (especially students of top academic standing). Most of these are available at the graduate level, but there are some secondary schools and undergraduate entrance scholarships available, particularly through individual institutions who wish to attract to academic students with financial need.
