International Students

As a smaller university, Concordia University of Edmonton has a history of providing high quality education and a tradition of personal care for students. Planning ahead is the best way to put in place the financial resources to attend Concordia. Students who are citizens of countries other than Canada are encouraged to contact officials of their own government for financial assistance options. While students attending university on a study permit are not eligible for Canadian federal, provincial, and territorial financial assistance, Concordia University of Edmonton does offer some scholarships and bursaries for qualified international students.

High School International Students

University Entrance Scholarship Program

The University Entrance Scholarship program provides guaranteed renewable scholarships to high school students who present a minimum award average of 75%. Scholarships vary in value according to the applicant’s award average. Automatic consideration is given to those who apply for Fall admission by April 1st; Winter admission by August 1st.

Concordia Bursary Program

International undergraduate students may also apply for bursary assistance (based on financial need) once they are attending Concordia University of Edmonton. Although international students are expected to have the funds necessary to cover tuition fees, living expenses and transportation before coming to Canada to study, there may be circumstances that arise creating financial need.

CUE Scholarships
