Choosing your university

  • Location – Popular choices for study include Ontario, British Columbia, Alberta and Quebec. Choose the city that fits best in terms of lifestyle, budget and university choices.
  • Course structure and fee – While tuition fees shouldn’t vary too much for the same fields of study, the kind of financial assistance and scholarships available to you may differ more substantially.
