Student Housing & Living Costs in Canada

One of the most important factors to consider when studying abroad will be your budget. As a student, it’s important to think about what kind of accommodations you will have, how much travelling you plan to do, and whether you will try and find part-time work. Fortunately, students also have the benefit of being eligible for student housing and tons of student discounts at popular sights and attractions. It’s also important to pick a student-friendly study abroad destination, like Canada!
