Cost of Study in Canada
International students prefer Canada over other popular study destination, due to low education expenses, specially the course fee as compare to US and UK is very cheap and affordable, which makes these students to opt Canada as their study abroad destination. Tuition can vary but it is generally around $25000/year. If you are staying on campus, the cost can be around $800/month. The cost of staying off campus can be a bit cheaper. It is generally around $500/month. The cost of food on campus is generally around $700/month. The cost can be around $200/month. The total cost of staying on campus can be generally around $1500/month and the total cost of staying off campus is generally around $800/month.
Tuition+food+staying= $3000+$1500(on campus) or $3000+$800(off campus) for one month. Though I would advise you to not think that this is the solid amount you have to pay, since there are a lot of other ways where you can reduce the cost.
