International Students

Support for International Students

Western University and the Master of Public Health Program wish to help make the transition for international students as effortless as possible. There are a number of resources to facilitate the transition to studying abroad, living in a new city and new country.

Below are some helpful resources for international students.

The following is an example of some cost estimates (in Canadian currency) for living expenses off-campus for a single person:

  • Rent: $400-600/month
  • Food: $350-400/month
  • Utilities & Cable: $100/month
  • Internet: $10-40/month
  • Phone: $50/month
  • Personal: $100/month
  • Clothing: $50/month
  • Entertainment: $100/month
  • Laundry: $25/month

If you plan on bringing your family with you, you should budget approximately $4,000 for the first family member and $3,000 for each additional family member, per year.
