Orientation

Follow these steps for an easier adjustment to student life at UNB:

1. Fees and financial services

There are many different options available to help you fund your university education. Examples include scholarships, bursaries and student loans. All you need to do is apply for them.

There is also a lot of flexibility when it comes to payment. There are a number of options and installment plans so that you don't have to pay all at once; just get in touch with your campus Financial Services offices in Fredericton or Saint John. They can also assist you with budgeting and other sources of funding.

Fees

There is a term fee for research-based graduate students (i.e., students who are doing their degree by thesis or project/report). Course route MEd students pay on a course by course basis.
