Cost and bursaries

The program cost is approximately $2800 that covers the major expenses for participating in the program (tuition fees for the programs, instructional materials, meals and accommodations, workshops, and other mandatory activities). Students are responsible for their transport and personal expenses.

If you meet the criteria, you can apply for a bursary of $2800 from the Minister of Education (http://www.myexplore.ca/). At the beginning of the first or second session of PDP, students will receive information about the program and the bursary.
