FAQs for International Students

Tuition costs reflect our commitment to continue to deliver excellent academic programs and student services; costs of providing service increase every year. It is important to note that U of G offers a high-quality education at tuition rates that are significantly lower than those of our peer institutions in Ontario. Our international tuition rates are 70 to 75 percent of those of our peer institutions.

We have implemented a new framework that limits future tuition increase for returning international students, allowing them to better plan for the cost of their education. We are committing that returning international undergraduate students will never face tuition increases greater than 5 percent. In addition, tuition rates will now be implemented in the fall semester rather than the summer semester to allow more time for planning and communication and to align with the schedules of peer institutions.

Funds from international tuition increases are earmarked to provide international student supports such as bursaries and scholarships. More information about the various financial supports available to international students is available on the International Student Support webpage.

 

Unlike domestic students, the cost of providing international students with a high-quality education is not supplemented by government funding and grants.
