International Students

SFU recognizes the demands that International students undertake during the course of their educational journey. At SFU, the Financial Aid and Awards Office is committing to providing funding opportunities for International students to financially assist qualified applicants in reaching their educational goals.

The University assumes that students will arrange their own funding to meet immigration requirements for the issuance and/or renewal of student authorizations and visas. An offer of admission to SFU is not an offer of financial support.  If you are an international applicant, you should find out from your home country about their financial aid programs to see if you qualify for assistance. 

Bursaries administered by SFU are awarded on the basis of demonstrated financial need on a term by term basis. Bursaries are not guaranteed, and are not designed to support a student’s entire unmet financial need. Bursaries are provided to students as supplemental funding dispersed part-way through each term and cannot be used to demonstrate core funding required to meet immigration requirements.

We encourage you to explore important information and resources that have been tailored for students from international pathways
