If you cannot afford to study in places like USA, Australia and UK where the tuition fees are high, you can study in Canadian low tuition universities. It might interest you to know that some universities in Canada charge very low tuition fees for international students. These tuition fees fall in the range of $5,000 to $10,000 per year for undergraduate, master and doctorate degree programs. About 3 years ago, I wrote an article on low tuition universities in Canada, listing the tuition fees for international students. This article has helped lots of students around the world enroll for studies in Canadian universities that charge very low tuition fees. You can find the link to the article here.
Today, I will like to provide an updated list of these low tuition universities with their current tuition fees and contact information. But before I do that, I will want us to take a look at the cost of living in Canada as a student.
Cost of living in Canada
Cost of living refers the amount of money an individual needs to take care of his/her expenses like feeding, accommodation, transportation etc in a particular period of time. In Canada, a student needs approximately $600 to $800 a month for his/her living expenses. This amount will take care of expenses such as feeding, buying of books, transportation etc. Please find below a breakdown of the cost of living in Canada for students:
- Accommodation (bedroom apartment) – $400 approximately per month.
- Average restaurant meal – $10 – $25 per person
- Movies – $8.50 – $13
- Books and supplies – $1000 per year
- Groceries – $150 – $200 per month
So you can see from this breakdown that a student needs approximately $600 to $800 a month to live in Canada. Please note that these figures are estimated, a student can live on less or more depending on his/her spending habit.
