University fees in mainstream countries>>

When comparing the tuition fees of universities in Canada, we can first compare the tuition fees in Canada with those in other countries to see which position the Canadian universities are in throughout the world.

The statistics on the cost of studying at universities in different countries are not the same on the Internet, and there are even large discrepancies. This is because the domestic university tuition and living expenses in each country are uneven, and each country has very expensive universities and areas consuming a lot of money. There are also low-cost schools and cheap cities. Below, we take one of the statistics as an example:

It is not difficult to see from the table that the cost of studying in a country is not only determined by the tuition fee, but also the level of local living expenses. Even though the United States ranks first in tuition fees, Australia is a more expensive destination for studying abroad because of the higher cost of living there.

Not only in terms of tuition fees or living expenses, Canada is among the lower ranks of mainstream study abroad destinations in the world.

Before comparing the fees of Canadian universities, we need to know that: The tuition fees of Canadian universities are gradually increasing with an annual increase of 2-15%, no matter for local students or international students, undergraduates or postgraduates. Even after the student enrolls, the tuition fee will be different every year.

In addition, due to the uneven economic development in various parts of Canada, the differences in prices and housing prices, the personal living standards of students are different, and with normal inflation, the cost of living varies from places every year.

The data listed below is collected from the official website of each university. Since the tuition fees for each major of each university are different, the following only uses the fees of business majors in each university as a representative.
