Tuition Fees for Domestic and International Students[edit]

The article should mention that international students are charged $40,000 a year, whilst domestic students pay a considerably lower tuition fee of $6,000. Furthermore, the reasons for this should be explained to the reading public, e.g. whether it is related to documentable higher expences, intended as a marketing trick or motivated by racism against third-world countries.

It is because the province does not give grants to universities for international students. I am not sure we need go into this in the article. Dbrodbeck (talk) 15:49, 8 February 2015 (UTC)
Yes agreed. And the same is true at most universities as well. Jphillips23 (talk) 06:24, 10 February 2015 (UTC)
There is no need to mention this, as it is not unique to University of Toronto. All other universities in Ontario are the same when it comes to funding international students. Johnny Au (talk/contributions) 17:08, 10 February 2015 (UTC)
As an international student, I pay $25,000 CDN, but that's for a masters. FYI - if you're going to insinuate that tuition is greater for international students because of "racism against third-world countries", maybe you should look up why using the phrase, "third world" when referring to least developed countries, is inextricably racist in of itself. Sort of ironic I guess...Davidhar (talk) 05:24, 11 February 2015 (UTC)
