Cost of study

Canada is one of the most popular education destinations in the world. Not only because of its natural beauty that attracts tourists and others to its shore, it is one of the countries which is the least expensive for living. Thanks to the government of Canada which has checked the inflation rate that allows international students to save significant costs in maintenance while studying.

From renting to commutation facilities to electricity bill or paying for your food bills, it does not cost more than $1,000 per month. This figure includes all sorts of day-to-day or monthly bills of yours.

Immigration, Refugee and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) puts a specific figure ($10,000) for international students to wire their funds to Scotia Bank for opening up their bank accounts. International students transfer $10,000 to purchase a Guaranteed Investment Certificate (GIC) with Scotia Bank. More information about the GIC purchase, please click here.

The annual tuition fees for international students vary considerably depending upon the title of course, type of institution and location. For example, universities are generally more expensive than community colleges. At the same time, universities have more scholarships available for international students than those of community colleges. In a nutshell, it is a tradeoff so the equation and reason for choosing the type of institution rests on the delicate balance. Here is the range of tuition fees for different types of levels:

  • Bachelor’s degree: CAD$25,000 to CAD$28,000
  • Master’s degree: CAD$16,000 to CAD$30,000
  • Doctoral degree: CAD$5,000 to CAD$13,000

These figures indicate an average fee range at universities and do not include high-value courses such as medical degrees or veterinary, which could cost significantly more. Fees for such courses are typically at the higher end of the scale. For specific amount of tuition fees for your course, please visit the website of the relevant university and course. The offer letter of university/community college reads the exact amount of tuition fees.

International students must buy overseas mediclaim policy to cover all types of medical conditions and exigencies. Generally, universities or colleges have alliances with the medical insurance companies and they arrange the insurance on your behalf. Medical care system in Canada is rated in the top three of the world; it means that your health is in safe hands of experienced and qualified medical professionals.

About safety, Canada is one of the safest and most desirable places in the world to live. The gun law is stricter and you would not have heard any kind of mass shooting incident on campuses in Canada. Canada has a low crime rate, so you just need to use common sense to stay safe during your stay. The emergency service number is 911, the same as in the neighboring country.

Hopefully you may not need any medical or safety assistance. If it is so, the relevant agencies are swift in their actions.
