Course Fees

Total course fees:
$2800CAD*

This includes the $100 non-refundable registration fee and the $300 deposit.*

The course fees include the University of Cambridge entry fee and all course materials.

Payment Plan
  • There is a registration fee of $100, which is non-refundable, and which should be paid upon acceptance to the course.
  • Once an applicant has been offered a place on the course, they may choose to pay a deposit of $300 to reserve their place. This is advisable as the courses tend to fill up quickly.
  • The remainder of the course fees must be paid in accordance with the deadline listed on the letter of acceptance. This date is usually two weeks prior to the course commencement. If the applicant doesn't pay the deposit and/or their tuition by the payment deadline date, their place will be offered to another applicant.
*Fees can be paid by credit card online, in cash, a personal (Canadian) cheque or by money order, bank draft or bank certified cheques made out to ILSC Montreal.
