uOttawa to offer reduced tuition to international students in French programs

October 9, 2013

The University of Ottawa announced this week that it will “substantially” reduce tuition fees for international undergraduate or graduate students who wish to study in French, in an attempt to promote the use of French on the world stage. Beginning in 2014-15, new international students who are eligible for the tuition fee waiver will pay the same amount as Canadian students, a savings of over $10,000 per year. uOttawa’s 2011 strategic plan, Destination 20/20, included goals to double the number of international graduate students it attracts, and to increase its international undergraduate population by 50% in the coming years. uOttawa News Release
