Study in Canadian low tuition universities

Be generous and share with friends

Canada’s high academic standards and rigorous quality controls mean that you’ll be earning a high-quality education that will open doors for your future and benefit your career over the long term. A Canadian degree, diploma or certificate is globally recognized as being equivalent to those obtained from the United States or Commonwealth countries.

The quality of education and living standards in Canada are amongst the highest in the world, but the cost of living and tuition fees for international students are generally lower than in other countries such as the United States and the United Kingdom. As such, Canada is often the preferred choice for students attending college or university.


The tuition for one academic year ranges from $5000 to 18,000 USD and is usually paid on registration day. You will need to budget for living costs, rent, travel, books, food healthcare and other expenses.

You should have sufficient funds on ground as the Canadian immigration bodies will need proof that you have enough funds to cover the cost of your tuition fees and living costs, usually a minimum of $10,000 in your account to cover living cost for the year.


The cost of living in Canada varies and depends on student’s lifestyle and the location you choose because certain areas are very expensive. These tend to be in larger cities and urban areas such as Montreal and Vancouver.

Cost of living in Canada is estimated at $700 – $800 per month and the amount covers the cost of food, accommodation, health and other expenses apart from tuition.


Students who cannot pay their tuition in Canada can apply for funding/scholarship. You can apply for funding immediately after you receive offer of acceptance from the university. Remember that these offer are limited and competitive, so you have to send your application early to stand a chance of getting an award..



Most universities in Canada accept online application, it is important you visit the school you may wish to study to find out more about application for study. I have decided to post list of some of the top universities in Canada to assist you in your application.


  • Brandon University
  • Memorial University of Newfoundland
  • Simon Fraser University
  • Fraser International College
  • Athabasca University
  • University of  Toronto Mineral Resource and civil engineering
  • University of Western Ontario
  • Ryerson university
  • CapeBreton University

    1. Admin

      Hi Almaruf, you have to apply to a Canadian university first, before you start working on your visa. With your invitation letter from the school, getting a visa will not be an uphill task. For low tuition universities in Canada, you can try Southern Alberta institute of Technology or Memorial University of Newfoundland. Their tuition ranges from $5000 to $7000 for international students. Thanks
