Cost, Scholarships and Work Permit in Canada

The Cost of Studying in Canada
Studying in Canada is not free, but it is affordable. The average cost for a foreign student for one school year (8 months) in an Arts & Science program is C$ 11,903.
Canada offers the lowest tuition rates for foreign students compared to the U.K., Australia, New Zealand and the US. Rates at U.S. public universities were almost 1/3 higher than fees for Bachelor’s degrees in Canada, while U.S. private university fees were more than double.

Scholarships & Awards for International Students to study in Australia
Scholarships and awards for international students are available at some Canadian institutions for students with exceptional results. The amount and type of award varies from one institution to another. Obtaining a scholarship is competitive and applications must be made directly to each school.

Other Scholarships for Studying in Canada
There are various organisations within Canada that administer scholarship programs but they are usually for graduate students and professors who are studying or researching a specific subject; Canadian studies are a typical area for which scholarships are awarded. Students should also check within their home country through public and private organisations for any financial assistance they may provide to students looking to study abroad.
