Financial Planning

What is the cost of an education in Canada?

What should I expect for tuition costs?

Every post-secondary institution in Canada has tuition fees and other expenses that students will be expected to pay throughout their program of study. Some institutions may cost more, some may offer more financial support.

The cost of education may vary depending on the institution, program of study, or whether it is postgraduate or undergraduate level.

According to Statistics Canada, the average undergraduate tuition fee for domestic students in 2021/22 in Canada was $6,683. And the average undergraduate tuition fee for international students in 2021/22 in Canada was $33,623.

At Acsenda, we do our best to help international students with scholarships, bursaries, loans, and payment plans. Our tuition fees are also lower than many other institutions in Canada.
