Tuition & Funding

Tution Fees and Funding

Tuition fees will be at the standard rate for School of Graduate Studies Doctoral Stream Masters programs. In the 2023-2024 academic year, these were set at $8,213.96 for domestic students, and $31,659.96 for international students. The MES is an unfunded program, however, all students admitted to the MES will be offered an entrance scholarship, a research assistantship, and the option to apply for a teaching assistantship in the School’s undergraduate program to help offset the cost of tuition. Students admitted to the MES do not need to submit any additional applications to be considered for the entrance scholarship or research assistantship.
