You are not a student in Canada and your dream of studying here but you don’t have the means to see your dreams become a reality. It is this reason the Canadian government has introduced so many scholarships in Canada, to help attract international students, especially from developing countries to Canada.
In 2015, the number of international students currently studying in a Canadian school and university was 350,000. This figure is expected to rise up to 500,000 international students by 2020, especially with the new strategies and acceptance rate and shortened visa time for international students.
One of the challenges you might face when you apply is the financial aspect. Canada has some of the best schools in the world, and it is a very popular destination for an international student especially in Ontario.
This means that the tuition fee won’t come very cheap and may even seem impossible for many students. But like other countries, Canada has a scholarship for students from every tribe.
Average Cost of Studying In Canada
International undergraduates in Canada pay 25,000 CAD per year, which is less than what undergraduates pay in countries like the US Australia and the UK. The postgraduate students pay an average tuition of 19,000 or lower for studies in Canada.
And courses under the Arts, Humanities and Agriculture often cost lower, the Undergrad students fee cost about 22,000 to 23,000 CAD year while the Post-Grad studies cost between 15,000 to 16,000 CAD
While Undergraduates studying law, mathematics, and Engineering pay average 16,000-18,000 CAD every year. But the MBA degrees cost more than the regular degrees, the regular MBA degrees can go as high as 44,000 CAD and the top MBA degrees cost about 60,000 CAD.
Also, this tuition may vary depending on the city, province or school you applied, for instance, in Ontario, an undergraduate program will cost on the average between 35,000 to 40,000 CAD, while the Post-Grad programs can go as high as 22,000 to 25,000 CAD.
And in provinces such as New Foundland and Labrador, an undergraduate program can go as low as 12,000 to 14,000 CAD and the post-grad programs can be as low as 5,000 to 8,000 CAD.
These prizes may seem impossible to pay at first, but I assure you that the only difficulty and challenge you might encounter is in your first payment, and after the first year everything becomes easier.
When you begin your studies as an international student you are allowed to work in the campus environment without a work permit. You can make good money weekly between 200 to 350 CAD weekly, which would help you take care of your tuition.
