4 Personal finance tips for international students

Rounding it up

  • Just because you’re an international student doesn’t mean you can’t secure a loan or scholarship; make sure to look into all your options.

  • Consider getting a Canadian credit card to help pay for the costs of living and opening a savings account to build a rainy day fund.

  • You may need to get a side-gig to pay for your student expenses.

  • Of course, stay on top of your budgeting to forge a successful financial future during and beyond your student years.
