Studying in Canada is very affordable when compared to studying in the UK, New Zealand or the US. The average cost for a foreign student for 1 year in an undergraduate program is C$11,000. Canada offers one of the lowest tuition rates when compared to institutions in developed countries. The rate in US public universities is almost 1/3 higher than the rate for private institutions in Canada. Even with this, Canadian universities still give out hundreds of full scholarships to international students to study in their country.
