The cost of studying in Canada

Do you dream of studying in Canada but want solid information on the costs? Well, you’re definitely in the right place for that!

Canada is a popular study location for myriads of reasons, but probably one of these is its lower study cost in comparison to European nations and the USA. Its cities, including Toronto, are some of the most popular study locations on the entire planet.

If you want to find out the cost, Canada’s Ministry of Education has created a very useful online tool to help you. You can also learn the process of documents you’ll need to study here.


Canadian academic institutions usually set their own fees, but generally, business courses are less expensive to study than the national average.

Compared to undergraduate study, postgraduate fees are lower but depend on the program you’re taking.

Canadian visa requirements state you must have a certain amount of money, depending on the city you want to study in. You should have a budget prepared for all the things you’ll need while studying. This includes books, phone bill, internet/TV package, transport, food, and more.


You may want to work to support yourself, alongside studying. Students who hold a study permit may be able to work either on-campus or off without applying for a work visa too. Please bear in mind that this option only allows you to work part-time which equates to 20 hours of work a week.

However, over your holidays, you can work full-time if you wish to do so. Some TSoM programmes include a co-op option which means in this case, a work visa will be necessary.
