Cost & Funding

Cost

How much will it cost?

The cost of studying abroad may be less than you think. Strategic planning can match you with a program that meets both your budget and academic goals. Plus, students pay regular tuition and student fees to SFU and not the host institution.

Destination, program length, and type of program are all factors affecting program affordability, but in many instances, the costs of studying abroad are comparable to those in Canada. There are also funding opportunities, financial aid, and supporting resources available at SFU Beedie to help with the overall costs of a global education.

Expenses to consider when planning your international learning experience include: Roundtrip Airfare, Tuition/Fees, Accommodations, Living Expenses/Food, Books and Materials, Local Travel/Transit, Exchange Fees and Visas.
