Canadian institutions offer lower tuition rates than many other countries, which means international 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.


Various universities have on-campus residences designated for international students, or residences available for all students on campus. Rent costs will vary greatly depending on where you study, and if you live on or off campus. Students looking to experience language immersion and cultural exposure to a Canadian home can also opt for home-stay accommodation with a Canadian family.

Most institutions can help with finding accommodations, both on and off-campus, and answer questions through their housing office or student services.
