TUITION AND OTHER FEES AND COSTS
Tuition fees for candidates
applying to Ontario universities under the "Student Authorization" status
are higher than those for Canadian Citizens. In addition, tuition will
vary from institution to institution and may sometimes differ depending on
the program being studied.
Generally, an international
student should anticipate requiring approximately $20,000 CDN for each
year of study in Canada in order to cover tuition, ancillary fees,
lodging, meals, books and supplies, health care and health insurance,
transportation and other personal expenses (entertainment, recreation,
telephone, laundry, clothing, etc.). Again, these costs may vary depending
on where you decide to attend university.
Requests for information on
scholarships, bursaries and financial aid must be made directly to each
university. There is no centralized financial service in Ontario and each
university offers different assistance. Some universities offer
scholarships based on academic merit to international students. Please
consult with the individual universities for details.
STUDENT HEALTH INSURANCE
International students and
their dependants are not eligible for free medical coverage under the
Ontario Health Insurance Plan. As a result, Ontario universities have a
compulsory private plan which provides equivalent coverage. In 1998-99,
the annual premium payable by the student ranged from approximately $570
CDN for an individual to approximately $1,800 for a family of three or
more. Further information on this plan is available from the individual
