You can also get financial assistance. Scholarships, grants and bursaries are available for international students wishing to study in Canada, at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels.

Many universities in Canada offer their own scholarships, so you might also be able to apply for a scholarship offered exclusively by the university at which you plan to study. In all cases, it’s important to apply as early as possible as scholarship funding is limited and highly competitive. International applicants are also advised to research study abroad scholarship opportunities offered by organisations in their home country.
