Equal tuition for international students

Mon, 2006-04-24 11:30

Quebec universities are severely underfunded, and Heather Munroe-Blum is taking the lead in looking at ways to address the problem. In an interview with Le Devoir, she says Quebec should consider treating international students on an equal footing -- 38 percent currently pay Quebec tuition rates. If they paid what American and other international students pay in tuition, it would mean at least $41.7 million more a year for Quebec universities. She also proposed that international tuition fees for undergraduate students stay with the host university -- a move that would mean $4 million more a year for McGill.
