To best estimate your complete costs for the year, please see the UBC Cost Calculator tool. This tool allows you to choose not only the program you will be attending, but also allows you to input any resources you may contribute.

Remember there are more costs (such as student fees, books, etc.) to a full year of school than simply tuition!

Credit load requirements may vary by Education program. Elementary & Middle Years and Secondary program options should expect to take between 60 credits, French Elementary 62-64 credits, and Secondary Science and Music 60-66 credits.

Extra credits/tuition may be applicable for the following cohorts:

  • International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB-PYP) — 3 credits
  • International Baccalaureate Middle Years Programme (IB-MYP) — 1 credit
  • International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IB-DP) — 2 credits

Tuition is paid in four instalments: September, January, May, and July. Tuition is not split equally between these four payments — the bulk of credits taken, and therefore tuition paid, will be in September and January.
