Tuition and Student Fees

Graduate fees at UBC are divided into student fees (AMS fees, Athletic fees, cost of travel pass, etc) and tuition fees. Do review the optional fee section. For the 2020-2021 academic year domestic tuition fees will be about $5096 per year divided into three payment installments which are due at the start of each term and student fees will be about $1,100. After three years for PhD students and two years for masters fees drop to $2328 per year.

International students are assessed $8,952 for tuition and are automatically considered for the a $3,200 International Partial Tuition Scholarship. This brings the tuition cost down, closer to the domestic student rates. Students assessed international tuition fees are not eligible for continuing fee reduction program. Providing sufficient funding, the department will also cover the tuition fees of the top PhD students in the program.

Please see the UBC calendar for information on current fee levels. The calendar also has information on ways to pay your fees.
