Financial Resources for Canadians

    Preparing your budget for the whole duration of your studies is probably the most important thing you can do before leaving home. 

    With the availability of shorter term programs in Australia, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom, studying overseas can be surprisingly affordable.

    Be encouraged about the options available. Where there is a will, there is usually a way! Take the time to research the many options available, construct an annual budget for an academic year and a plan for your available resources.
