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 2023-2024 academic year domestic tuition fees will be about $5408 per year divided into three payment instalments which are due at the start of each term and student fees will be about $1,359. After three years for PhD students and two years for masters fees drop to continuing fees $2470 per year.

International students are assessed $9500 for tuition and are automatically considered for 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 their first 4 years.

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