Sorry by a few years ago meant I graduated in 2018, finishing school late 2017. This wasn't that long ago.

So in the grand scheme of things how much does an international student pay per year based on a full course load?  My niece is attending one of the top 10 universities in the world and her tuition as a citizen of the country where the university is is 72k CAD per year and that is just tuition, no residence fees, etc included

According to UVic currently international students shell out slightly north of $21K in the first year sliding on up closer to $28K by the fourth year.

 

Purely out of curiosity it would interesting to know where your niece is attending university. We looked briefly at foreign schools for mizz ASE, the most expensive in the world according to the 2019 rankings (we were looking in 2016) is the University of Chicago postgraduate PhD program, clocking in at $57+K USD or just over $76K Cdn, for both domestic and international students....

Just tallied up the first year of my daughters Masters in London UK 10 months in to her 2 year program I'm out $30k for fees and $12k accommodation. She has a UK passport but is paying the international rate for fees as she has to be resident in the UK for 3 years to be eligible for the reduced rate of $20k per year. 

 

I figure she will be $100k for this and another $50k for her PhD but she'll be able to hang her shingle anywhere in the world and pull in solid 6 figures so its money well spent as she'll need it to look after me when I'm old and crotchety

 

Her fiance is in Germany working on his Masters in Astrophysics and he isnt paying a nickel for tuition but approx $1k per month in accommodation. And he's Australian

The numbers I quoted were tuition only LJ, per year (no books, labs or service or ancillary university fees, all of which are on top of the annual tuition); Rotman isn't charging $100K for each year of their MBA program, that is the total cost, all in...

The fees I quoted of 72k per year is tuition only, first year undergrad, no books, no accommodation, nothing.  If UVic charges international students 21k per year then its a real bargain.  Maybe Canadian universities need to start double or tripling their foreign tuition?

$21k per year is a bargain compared to the USA. Out of state tuition in the US is around $30k for most schools.

That's kinda what I said, MBA program, not yearly, I know, I paid it.

Yup, I had a couple Americans in my cohort at McGill who chose a Canadian school because it was cheaper than staying in the States. Quebec schools are even more confusing since there is a Quebec resident rate, a Canadian and French rate, and an international rate (French citizens previously paid the Quebec rate, but I think they now pay the Canadian rate).

Hey, a fellow Redman!  Not that many of us in town.  What vintage?  I remember all of the students coming from countries with which Quebec had bilateral agreements getting to pay the Quebec student rate, while we payed the surcharge.  Lots of Americans when I was there.

^ 2013-2015, just a short stint for a Masters in Urban Planning. Our cohort was roughly 1/3 Quebecois, 1/3 other Canadian, and 1/3 international, which apparently that particular program tries to achieve every year.

Another protest today. Blockading/blocking access to the Michael Williams Building (MWB) where the Finance and VPs/Executive work out of. Signs are mostly of the 'Fees for Food' and 'Cassels' variety. Sounds like it may go all day.

Interesting. The tuition fee hikes when I went to UVic (2004-2008) were supposed to be the end of public education as we knew it, not to mention lead to mass starvation.

Ditto for the fee increases in the mid-80's when I was there. Rinse. Repeat. Move along now, nothing to see here....
