Comparing Canadian institutions to those in other well-liked study abroad countries, the cost of tuition is somewhat lower. For International students, it is a very practical option when considering the return on investment and the great part- and full-time employment opportunities.
There is no denying that studying abroad may be expensive for students. However, Canada has the lowest tuition costs for international students when compared to the US, the UK, Australia, and New Zealand. Courses in the humanities, education, and the arts are typically less expensive than those in the sciences, medicine, and engineering. The tuition fees are normally higher, and the charges vary based on the program, if you want to pursue postgraduate education.
Average Fees for the Study Program in CAD*

All international students must have healthcare insurance, regardless of the country they receive an education in. International students’ access to healthcare in Canada differs from city to city.
Provincial health care and private health insurance are the two main categories of medical insurance in Canada.
Essential emergency and preventative services are included in the provincial medical health care system. International students can also choose private health insurance, which has many more benefits than provincial health care and is available to all foreign nationals studying in Canada on a study visa who need to utilize the services.
In Canada, private health insurance typically costs between $600 and $1000 CAD.
Students are allowed to work part-time, either on campus or off campus, for roughly 20 hours per week. They may also apply for a post-study work visa that is good for up to three years, depending on how long the programme is. After completing the Post-Graduation Work Permit Program, you can get significant work experience that will help you decide whether or not you want to remain in Canada. If you later apply to become a permanent resident of Canada, this programme might also be helpful.
PWPP work permits allow you to work in any occupation and switch employers at any time. They are valid for the same amount of time as your first study programme (up to a maximum of three years). You must have earned a degree from a recognized institution in a Canadian province or territory, whether from a public or private university. Within 90 days of obtaining written notification that your academic programme is over, you must submit an application for the PWPP.
