Study in UBC

A photo of Michail Michail
Hello ,

My name is Michael , I'm from Israel . I want to make my master program in UBC, but right now I have small economics problem. I was wondering if it's possible to receive full scholarship for two years study. Because here in university I graduated from , U can study and work in the campus thats way U can live and pay for second degree. I was graduated from Technion Israel institute of technology. Thanks

A lot of Canadian schools offer funding packages for grad students. For example, I am going to the University of Toronto, and they guarantee $15,000/year in funding plus a tuition waiver for all masters students. I also believe you could apply for an NSERC scholarship after your first year, which is a form of government funding. Contact the various schools to ask about what funding they might be able to offer. You can also work as a teaching assistant, which would add an extra few thousand dollars.

Contact UBC to ask about their typical funding packages. I was just giving an example of one from another school.

Sorry to invade, but how does one live on that little?

Well that includes a tuition waiver, so luckily you don't have to pay tuition out of that. So it's $1250 a month, which is tight but doable. $400-500 a month on rent, $300 on food, $100 transportation, $400 variable. I actually received NSERC funding ($17,500 for one year, U of T drops their funding to $12,000/year but no tuition waiver) so my yearly funding is higher than that. If I receive similar external awards in my second year I will be able to live pretty comfortably.

Look online, there are tons of scholarships to apply for, especially if you would have difficulty attending UBC without one. I'm going to UBC for the first time this year too. YEAAAAAAH BUDDY
