Resources to help get you started

Financial Aid for International Students

Moving to a new country to study can be expensive. The option for financial aid is there to lessen that financial burden. In Canada, there are options like scholarships and bursaries for international students. Check with the school you’re interested in attending and with the Government of Canada to see your choices in more detail. Another option to consider is a student line of credit to help you manage financially.
