According to the Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada, between 2000 and 2011, there was an almost 50% increase in the number of U.S. citizens enrolling in Canadian schools.
What are the benefits of enrolling in a Canadian university? The perks range widely, from experiencing a new country to participating in highly esteemed academic programs. Students with Canadian citizenship especially may want to consider applying to a Canadian school- they may qualify for domestic tuition rates.
Even students with only U.S. citizenship may qualify for lower tuition rates- the average yearly tuition in Canada for international students is about $15,000-$18,300 a year (considerably lower than many U.S. colleges- the current out-of-state average tuition is $24,900).
