Tuition fees

Tuition fees details for 2016-2017 : MSc

Tuition fees vary according to the course of studies you choose. For the M.Sc. supervised project stream, tuition fees are based on a fixed amount per credit. For the thesis stream, which involves more supervision by faculty, tuition fees are in the form of a fixed amount per term.

Regardless of the number of terms completed, students who switch from the project to the thesis streams must take into consideration that we will apply the tuition fees for the 1st term of the thesis stream. Please consult the table of tuition fees for more details.

All courses that do not contribute to obtaining the MSc degree (preparation, introductory, non-program) are payable per credit.
