It is now said that as many as one third of young people choose to return home to live after they are finished college. The main reason for this is that they are trying to save as much money as possible while they attempt to pay back student loans. It seems that there are few careers that don't require a degree that can cost you tens of thousands of dollars. And if you want to work as a specialist or as a mechanical engineer then you're likely going to get into paying into the six figures by the time you're done your post-grad work. If you're thinking about applying to school, then you are definitely going to need to put some thought into how much you will be paying for tuition before you can apply.

If you're planning to attend university in Canada, then you should expect average tuition fees of about $8500 per year as an undergraduate student. Education is one of the cheapest programs and if you're thinking of working as a structural engineer then you can expect to pay closer to $11,000 per year. This is the most expensive program on average. Those who wish to go into other forms of medicine, like studying to be a pharmacist for Shoppers Drug Mart, can also expect to pay more than ten thousand dollars a year for their program.


While these fees might seem high, there are nothing when compared to what students pay across the border in America. There are many students from Canada who choose to study in one of the fifty states and it is not rare there to pay as much as $50,000 per year for the average program. You will always pay more as an international student then those who are studying there who are from that country. This is why many students will need to work in the summers to help them pay for school.

Those that are planning to go to college will pay less than those in university in Canada. The average last year was $2600 a year and there are still many different programs to choose from. But, you might find that the average pay of those professions is going to be a little less than you could make with a university degree. Others choose to bypass university and college all together and take single courses to train them for their future. If you want to work in real estate services, for example, them you will just need to pay for one real estate course and take an exam at the end to become certified.
