Tuition and scholarships

Tuition will likely be your single biggest cost while attending university or college.

However, the total cost of your education will depend on:

  • How many classes you take
  • How you get around (car, bus, bike, etc.)
  • Where you live
  • Where (and what) you eat

There are many ways to fund your education, including scholarships and bursaries, co-op jobs and work study positions.
