Wilfrid Laurier University (WLU) — public non-profit university. It is located in Waterloo, Canada. The higher education institution was founded not so long ago — in 1973 — which is why it is considered one of the youngest in the country. WLU is a part of Association of Universities and Colleges of Canada (AUCC), Association of Commonwealth Universities (ACU), Council of Ontario Universities (COU), Canadian University Society for Intercollegiate Debate (CUSID), Canadian Bureau for International Education (CBIE), Canadian University Press (CUP).
WLU is developing different scientific directions and invites students to join the research.
The academic calendar at WLU is divided into two semesters. For convenience, tuition fees are calculated per year. Tuition fees here are different for locals and foreigners. For locals, it starts from 5,520 USD, and for foreigners — a minimum of 15,000 USD. On the official website of the university, you will find all the relevant information about tuition fees and scholarships.
It is necessary to pay attention to other costs: accommodation, transportation, study materials, food, and personal expenses.
The campus of WLU is urban. This means that students study closely to the sights and the entire recreational infrastructure of the city. This type of campus gives students more options for internships and part-time jobs. There is a library on the grounds of the university. There are collected scientific works of graduates and teachers of the university, as well as fiction. WLU accepts students for international exchange programs. This is a great opportunity to gain experience in intercultural communication for both international and local students.
Canada allows university graduates to stay in the country from 1 to 3 years. To do this, you need to apply for a graduate visa, which allows you to work even without a formal offer from an employer. You can find other options for immigration in our article.
