Tuition fees are between $5000- $18000, which depends on the choice of institution. The fees are paid on the day of registration in most of the institutions. The tuition fees are meant for an academic year comprising two semesters which is usually about eight months.

Requirements for healthcare for international students are different in various cities. It is important that students prepare their healthcare insurance before they arrive in Canada. This may be a private health care plan or your institutions plan.


In Canada all institutions have their own set of requirements. Students in order to be sure they meet such requirements can use the services of evaluation agencies that are recognized by the institutions.
