Money Matters

Investing in your future

It's an investment in yourself and your future. Your time at the University of New Brunswick will help enrich your life and launch your professional career after your studies.Your university education is the most important financial investment you'll ever make.

Recent studies have shown that earning a bachelor's degree is worth nearly $750,000 more than high school diploma over the course of a career.

An affordable education

University costs include tuition, fees, books and living expenses if you are living away from home. 

UNB's tuition costs are some of the lowest in the Maritimes at $6,187 a year for most programs.

Your tuition and fees help ensure UNB offers a high quality education with the program options you want.

You will also find savings when comparing living costs in Fredericton or Saint John versus other cities in Canada. These are important factors when considering the overall cost of attending university.

Scholarships, bursaries & loans

To offset some of the costs of a university education, UNB offers millions of dollars in scholarship support each year, creates part-time and summer jobs for UNB students, offers budgeting and financial aid advice, and guides you through the government loan process.

Figuring out how to pay for your university education can seem daunting, but it's far from impossible. UNB offers a wide range of scholarships and awards designed to help you pay for your studies. Students who have completed a scholarship application and have been admitted to a UNB degree program on the basis of their high school marks will be considered for scholarship support.

However, chances are the higher the scholarship average, the higher the value of scholarship support, so it pays to study! UNB scholarships for high school students range from $500 to $60,000. In addition there are provincial and federal student loan programs that can also help you raise the remaining funds you need for school.

Make money while you study

You can earn money while you're at university by taking a co-op or work-study program, or an internship. There are also part-time and summer employment opportunities.
