UBC MBAN Program Costs

To apply to the MBAN program, all applicants (Canadian and International) pay the non-refundable $154.25 CAD fee prior to the application being processed. Please note that the electronic application requires payment of an application fee using MasterCard or Visa only. Application fees cannot be deferred and are only valid for the academic year in which you apply.

Tuition fees are payable in three equal installments in the first week of September, January and May. Upon receipt of an offer of admission, you will be required to submit a non-refundable and non-transferable $5,000 deposit in Canadian currency, which will be credited towards your first tuition installment.

The cost of living can vary greatly depending on your lifestyle, budget and spending habits, but these estimated costs of living in Vancouver while in the UBC MBAN program should give you a general idea.
