SCHOLARSHIPS AND AID BY PROGRAM:
Graduate students enrolled in eligible programs can apply for government assistance which includes loans and grants. Financial institutions also offer assistance through student lines of credit. Specific questions regarding loan funding should be directed to the Financial Aid Office.
Loans for International Students
International students can access most forms of financial aid administered by TWU. However, Canadian Government Student Loans are only available to Canadian citizens and permanent residents.
International students may qualify for government student loans granted by their home country. Students should refer to the foreign school policies for their student loans in their home country. Banking institutions in Canada offer student lines of credit to those who have a credit history in Canada. Otherwise, it is recommended to research options in their home country.
