Types of Fees for International Study

When applying to schools in Canada and the USA you need to know the different fees that you will have to pay. There are 4 different types of fees you will be paying for:

  • application fees
  • tuition fees
  • applying for a visa
  • your cost of living.

Studying in either Canada or USA requires you to have around $20,000 to cover your cost of living & tuition fees. It is also important to have that amount because it is required for you to get a Visa.

When you apply for Visa it is important to show that you are capable of paying for your tuition fee and cost of living. This will increase your chances of being accepted to for a visa.

Let’s break down the costs:
