International Student Applications

International Student Applicants should be aware that when applying for a study permit or visa, they will be asked to provide evidence that they hold sufficient funds to live on while studying in Hamilton. In our offer letters, McMaster University states that “a reasonable estimate of living expenses, in addition to tuition fees and travel costs to and from McMaster for a graduate student for a 12-month period is about $12,500 for a single person. Health insurance is mandatory for all Visa students and is provided through the University Health Insurance Plan (UHIP) at a current cost of $624.00 for one person.” For more details about UHIP, please visit, UHIP
