so today we’re going to talk about the top ten affordable colleges in Canada for international students. There are tons of school here in Canada and you know how hard it can be to do the school hunting considering that you only have a limited budget so if you want to know more about the tuition fee here in Canada and if you’re looking for affordable colleges then, by all means, read through this article.
In this article, we will discuss each school, their tuition fee cost, and if they require an IELTS. We will also discuss the unemployment rate in that certain province and as well as the cost of living in that province. Stay tuned.
Top 10 affordable colleges in Canada
On the top of our list of colleges in Canada is the Conestoga College, this college is located somewhere in Ontario and they have over six campuses across Ontario. The tuition fee for this college is around 13,800/year if you’re going to take a Business Administration program.
They don’t require you to have an IELTS, all you need do is to submit your English as a medium of instruction. The cost of living in that area is not that much when you compare it to Toronto because it’s outside the city I’ve been there once or twice so I would describe it as a family-friendly committee so if this is what you are looking for then you should consider studying in Conestoga. The unemployment rate in Ontario is 5.6%
College of catatonia
Coming in at second place on the list of colleges in Canada is the college of catatonia. It’s located somewhere in British Columbia and the tuition fee cost in cash of Caledonia is $12,500/year however they require you to have an IELTS with 6.0 no lower than 5.5. The cost of living in that area is medium because it’s outside of Vancouver city and the unemployment rate in British Columbia is 4.7% so that’s pretty good if you are going to compare with other provinces across Canada.
The third affordable college in Canada is the Yukon college. It’s located somewhere up north of British Columbia which is an extremely cold area. The tuition fee for Yukon College is $12,000/per year. frankly am still kind of wondering it its $12,000 per year since this college is located outside of nowhere, it’s up north and it’s extremely cold.
I don’t think they want international students to come over there and study they also require you to have an IELTS they didn’t specify on their website like how much IELTS you need to have but they require you to take the IELTS. The cost of living in the Yukon is medium to high because you’re outside of nowhere and you constantly need to request a transfer for your food and stuff and I think you can live in Whitehorse but still living in Whitehorse is not that cheap. The unemployment rate in the Yukon is 3.6% so that’s pretty good
Nova Scotia Community College
Nova Scotia Community College comes fourth on our list of affordable colleges in Canada. It is located somewhere in Nova Scotia Atlantic province and the tuition fee is $11,800/year. They require you to have an IELTS of 6.0 in all that and the cost of living in Nova Scotia is pretty low if you’re going to compare with other provinces like Toronto or Ontario. The unemployment rate in Nova Scotia is around 7.2% per year and this unemployment rate is based on the last year 2019.
Lethbridge College is located somewhere in Alberta just down below Calgary. The tuition fee for this college is around 10,764/year so if you’re going to take a multimedia production but other than that they have like they have different tuition fee cost per program
The good thing about this school is, they can wave your English exam but they always changed the rules so you just have to double-check when applying for this college to see if they don’t really require IELTS. Sometimes when they do require an IELTS, they want you to have 6.0 not lower than 6.0.
The unemployment rate in Alberta is 6.9% and the cost of living in this area is not that much because it’s outside of the city so you’re going to expect that the cost of living will be medium
Northern Lights college
Northern Lights college one of the most affordable colleges in Canada is located somewhere on the east side of British Columbia it’s specifically in a town called Dawson Creek. Some programs offered by this school doesn’t require you to have an IELTS but in some they do, so you just have to double-check every program to see if there is an IELTS requirement.
The tuition fee for this school is around $332 per unit so if you’re going to take 30 units per year then it’s going to be around $9,900/year. I get unemployment rate in British Columbia is pretty low it’s just 4.7% and as well as the weather it’s not that bad and living in Dawson Creek is not that expensive because it’s far away from Vancouver city it’s like on the other side of British Columbia so it’s you’re going expect that medium standard of living.
New Brunswick community college
Another affordable college in Canada is the New Brunswick college, it is really close to Nova Scotia just right next to Nova Scotia and has a tuition fee of $9,300/year. They don’t require you to have an IELTS and if you’re going to consider the cost of living it’s pretty good.
However, the unemployment rate in this province is around 7.9% which is pretty high when you compare it with Ontario British Columbia and Alberta but if you want to consider moving to a province and you want to immigrate really quick then Nova Scotia and New Brunswick it’s a good choice because of its Atlantic immigration pilot program.
Medicine Hat College
Coming in at eighth place on the list of colleges in Canada is the medicine hat college which is located somewhere in Alberta. This college, however, requires you to have an IELTS with a score of 6.0 not lower than five, and surprisingly the tuition fee here is pretty reasonable it’s around $8,200/year if you’re going to a healthcare program.
But if you want to take the Business Administration program, then it’s around $9,000/year so that’s which is fair. medicine hat college is just somewhere down Calgary it’s two hours away from Calgary so if you’re thinking about the cost of living here it’s pretty decent. Again, the unemployment rate in Alberta is around 6.9% percent
Selkirk College is ninth on our list of colleges in Canada and is in British Columbia. This college requires you to have 6.0 for your IELTS and for some program they require to have an IELTS of 6.5.
The good catch here if they have 5,000 Canadian dollars per year for their programs which is a great offer if you ask me, I was amazed when I check their website and dig in and then I look at the tuition fee cost and I found out all they have like 5,000 if you’re going to take medical office administration. But if you want to take a diploma then it’s going to be more expensive. I think is around 12,000CAD for post-graduation in post-grad diploma.
if you want to take a one-year course so consider this cottage, the cost of living here it’s medium and again the unemployment rate is 4.7% percent.
The last and tenth college on our list of colleges in Canada is the Holland College which is located somewhere in Prince Edward Island (PEI) it’s right above Nova Scotia and its six hours away from Nova Scotia. The only bad side of Holland College is the weather but that’s not totally bad if you’re going to compare it with the Yukon.
If I am to school here, I will just stay there for two years not minding the weather I’ll just stay there, work, and then move to another province. The fun part about this college is that you are going to spend less, let’s say for a diploma for two years you’re just going to spend $8,000 for two years.
Their IELTS is optional they don’t require to have an IELTS especially if you just finish your school recently you know there’s no gap between more than two years. The cost of living in this province is pretty low however the unemployment rate is 8.8%, which is pretty high even higher than that of Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. I don’t think you need to worry about finding a job after school.
If you pick this college as your choice of study, my advice is that you study here for two years and then move to another province.
Aside from our list of top colleges in Canada, I also found out that the University of Victoria and Breton University are pretty affordable too. When I check out their website, I found out that the tuition fee for the University of Victoria is around $10,000/year or per program I’m not really sure which is why I didn’t include it in this article. I am still doing my best to find out the right info once I get that I will include it in my next article.
