Get the financial support you need

You can fund your Canadian education in a number of ways. If your grades are high or you’ve made a notable contribution to society, you may be eligible for a scholarship. If not, you could apply for a student loan.

Scholarships

Institutional Entrance Scholarship

If you’re a strong student academically, you may be presented with an entrance scholarship. These are given on behalf of a university or educational institute that has accepted your application.

You don’t need to apply for the scholarship—you’ll automatically be considered when you apply to the institute. However, you must keep in mind that final grades are reviewed in July and August to ensure that you have maintained your academic performance.

Institutional Departmental Scholarship

Each educational institute has several departments and faculties. In some cases, individual departments offer select scholarships to high-calibre students. We recommend inquiring about these scholarships, as they may help alleviate your financial situation.

Canadian scholarships for international students

Canada offers a number of generous scholarships to international students, including scholarships offered by the Canadian government. CEdC encourages you to inquire about scholarships in Canada, no matter what your academic level is.  As an open-minded country, Canada not only focuses on the academic achievements of students, but also on students’ contributions to society.

Student loans

We recommend contacting your local bank or educational institute to find out more about student loans. In addition, the International Education Financial Aid (IEFA) database also provides international students with educational loans.

Tuition & Other Costs

Tuition varies depending on where you go and which degree you pursue. Generally, tuition fees fall between $12,000 and $25,0000 a year. If you go into a management program, it could cost between $33,000 and $40,000 per year.

There are other expenses to consider as well. These include:

  • Books and supplies: approximately $1,350 per year
  • Food and living expenses: $4,000 to $6,000 per year
