Student researching how to pay for his education

You've done your homework, researched post-secondary educational options, and know exactly where you're going to study. Next, you need to figure out how to pay for it.

There are many options for financing your education or training. These can include:

  • RRSP, RESP funds and parent contributions
  • Your savings, or earnings from part-time or full-time jobs
  • Grants, bursaries, and scholarships
  • Loans from government, lending institutions or student lines of credit
  • Apprenticeship and co-op education programs

It Pays to Stay

Are you from Nova Scotia? It makes a lot of financial sense to stay here for your post-secondary education. And with so many college and university choices around the province, you can still get away from home. Consider these financial benefits:

  • You can apply for Nova Scotia bursaries and grants
  • Travel expenses to visit home are much less and you can go more often
  • Many schools outside Nova Scotia have higher tuition for out-of-province students

What are your options for loans, bursaries and scholarships? Find out more by exploring this section.
