Montreal has four universities and has a higher percentage of university students in its population than all other major North American cities.
What’s more, the average yearly tuition paid by Quebec students is the lowest in Canada. As well, the province offers a number of generous student aid programs.
While tuition for out-of-province and international students studying in Quebec is significantly higher, the children of new immigrants to the province can take advantage of the low in-province tuition rates.
Montreal has recently received other international praise and attention, for example, being ranked as the only hip city in North America, according to a New York Times global survey.
