International University Inquiries
Canadian University
Average cost of tuition in Canada is $6186 per year not including books, food, or lodging.
It ranges from low-cost provinces like Newfoundland and Labrador ($2861) and Quebec ($3278) to high-cost provinces such as Ontario ($7513) and Alberta ($7061).
In four years, tuition will vary from $2,893 (Newfoundland) to $9,231 (Ontario).
Since 1990, average tuition and compulsory fees have risen 6.2% each year - three times rate of inflation.
Instead of keeping tuition costs low, Provinces are opting to offer students loans with favorable terms and easy repayment plans.
60% of students graduate with an average of $27,000 in debt (likely larger if private debt is included).

By the end of 70s, early 80s, Cultural Revolution ended and the "Gaokao" system was readopted. Going to university was free. The government provided financial aid in addition to all student bodies.
In 1983, the Chinese government decided to orient the students to pre-select majors while they are still in high school and focus on those topics, so that they can better prepare themselves while still in high school. On the entrance exam, students who have different academic orientations, whether math and science of literature, their exams are different. For instance, if a student finds himself good at math and chemistry, he will study math and chemistry in the university. And while he is still at high school, he will be put in the class which only teaches math and chemistry other than English and mandarin which are two mandatory subjects for the entrance exam.
In 1989, Chinese government started charging higher education for a tuition fee equivalent to $32 per semester. The government provided financial aid to all student bodies.
In 1996, tuition was increased significant as the Chinese government adopted "Binggui" registration, meaning students pre-select their major areas and aim for suitable university. Majors are not to be changed in the future. It made easier for student to prepare for the entrance exam, and hence increased admitted student population and tuition fee.
In 2000, tuition in general increased by 15% - 20% in some areas such as the northeast area. Tuition reached 4000 RMB, equivalent to $685. And in 2005, most majors cost around $800, and particular art institution and music academies cost between $800 to $1600 a year.
For 2013-2014 academic year, average tuition costs $800/year, private fine arts, music and drama institutions cost up to $2000 a year.
