Graduate Student Fees

In addition to tuition, UBC graduate students are also assessed mandatory student fees, which include an Athletics and Recreation Fee, a public transit pass (U-Pass) fee and membership fees for the Graduate Student Society (GSS) and the Alma Mater Society (AMS). You’ll also be charged for mandatory extended health and dental insurance coverage, unless you can demonstrate that you already have equivalent coverage.

Funding

In-depth information about needs-based funding such as loans, bursaries and other types of financial aid is available from the UBC Student Financial Assistance and Awards office.

Once the MGEM program receives provincial approval, MGEM students may apply for UBC bursaries, but must be in receipt of full Canadian Government student loan funding and have “unmet need” after their loan funding as determined in their loan assessment. UBC bursaries are non-repayable awards. They are designed to help fill unmet need, the gap between your assessed financial need and available government assistance.  Refer to the UBC Awards & Money Management website for complete details.
