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 2016-2017 academic year domestic tuition fees will be about $4,707 per year divided into three payment installments which are due at the start of each term and student fees will be about $900. After three years for PhD students and two years for masters fees drop to $2150 per year.
International students are assessed $8,270 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.
