Cost of Study in Canada

Canadian institutions offer more affordable tuition rates than many other countries. If finances are a factor, students can save considerably by studying in Canada. All Canadian universities receive public funding through their provincial governments, which allows for lower tuition fees and ensures all universities adhere to a code of academic standards.

Rent costs will vary greatly depending on where you study, and if you live on or off campus.

If you choose to live off campus you will likely pay around $600 a month to rent a room and at least $1,800 a month to rent an apartment.

More information on the cost of living is available at the EduCanada website.

Knowing the cost of living is vital when preparing to study abroad. Use our cost of living calculator to estimate how much you will need to cover all your expenses as an international student. Go to IDP's Cost of Living Calculator.

Study Direct Stream

Studying in Canada is made simpler and faster with its new Study Direct Stream (SDS). It provides a streamlined study permit application process for students who will enter directly into their program or course of choice at an eligible Canadian institution.

Canada as a study or research destination also offers scholarship opportunities to non-Canadian residents. To find out more about scholarships in Canada, fellowships or funding opportunities available, talk to an IDP Counsellor.
