Loan Programs

Government Student Loans are an excellent source of funding for Canadian and Permanent Resident UBC MM students. Students do not make principal or interest payments until six months after MM studies are completed. Additionally, student loans are granted without proof of strong credit ratings, secure employment and assets.

Students do not have to prove themselves in these areas, as is normally required for bank loans. To best understand government student loans and ensure you apply through the correct program, it is important to work with your UBC Enrolment Services Professional.

Please note that government student loans were designed primarily for undergraduate studies. Therefore, the maximum amount of funds provided by a government student loan will not be enough to cover UBC MM tuition. Government student loans should only constitute part of an MM student's financing plan.

The following institution have offered to provide financing and assistance to eligible candidates enrolled in the MM program. Loans or Lines of Credit may provide students with the financial assistance to help with tuition, books, personal living expenses, as well as everyday banking needs.


Loan Programs
Prodigy Finance 

Eligible to 150 nationalities worldwide, there are loans available for current and incoming international students. For more information, please visit their website here.

Lifelong Learning Plan

The Lifelong Learning Plan is a Government of Canada initiative that allows individuals to use RRSP savings towards the cost of their education. Information on this program is available from Canada Customs & Revenue Agency.

Teaching Assistants/Research Assistants

UBC MM students do not assume the roles of Teaching or Research Assistants. These roles are usually occupied by MSc and PhD students in the Sauder School of Business.

Part-Time Work Opportunities

UBC MM students are not encouraged to work part-time during the program owing to the large time commitment required for classes, group work and individual study.
