These bursaries reduce tuition fees payable by international students to the same level as those paid by students from Quebec.
The Government of Quebec has agreements with some forty countries and a few organizations, under which students who come to study in Quebec are exempt from paying differential tuition fees. Quotas vary among countries. Students wishing to benefit from the exemption must apply to those in charge of the program in their country of origin. For more information, visit the Quebec Government web page: Exemptions Granted by Virtue of Agreements.
HEC Montréal offers a number of differential tuition fee exemptions to international students enrolled to the Master of Science program (MSc) in the thesis stream.
For more information on these exemptions, visit the Differential Tuition Fee Exemptions (MSc) – newly admitted page.
An exemption is offered to all international PhD students within the funding package offered at the moment of their admission.
Note: Students who are French citizens are not eligible for these exemptions because an exemption is granted them automatically in order of the agreement between the Government of Quebec and France.
