Quebec is a popular destination for international students. In order to pursue studies in Quebec, proof of unencumbered available funds is required to cover tuition and living expenses.
You can prove funding with:
- your bank statements for six months showing sufficient funds to support your studies and proof you paid tuition and housing fees;
- bank statements from a close relative showing sufficient funds to support your studies and a financial support confirmation letter from the close relative;
- proof of funding paid from within Canada, if you have a scholarship or are in a Canadian-funded educational program.
Tuition is estimated at $15,000 a year. This amount varies between institutions and study programs.
In addition to tuition, you must have adequate living expenses, calculated as follows:
|Persons coming to Quebec||Amount of funds required per year (in addition to the tuition)|
|With a family member older than 18 (2)||+$5,100|
|With a family member under 18 (2)||+$3,800|
|Any additional family member older than 18||+$5,125|
|Any additional family member under 18||+$1,903|
