Students from outside of Quebec who study in French-language institutions outside of the Greater Montreal area will enjoy a significant discount on tuition fees by paying the same amount as Quebeckers. That is a difference of around $21,000 in tuition per student each year, with Quebec international students’ average tuition plummeting from $24,000 to $3,000 for every school year. Under a plan to attract foreign students to Quebec’s outlying areas, Immigration Minister Jean Boulet announced that qualified international students would be permitted to work up to 20 hours per week under the program.
