The UdeM Exemption Scholarship

Academic year 2024
Amount Up to $222,41


The UdeM exemption scholarship program is designed to support international candidates in their university studies. Since the fall of 2020, it is possible to benefit from an exemption from the tuition fees normally charged to international students.

The goal of this program is to help the best talent from all countries attend one of the finest francophone research universities in the world. In turn, these international students will help fulfil our educational mission by enriching the cultural diversity of the Université de Montréal community.

Renewal of the scholarship program

The exemption scholarship is granted for the Winter 2024, Summer 2024, Fall 2024 and Winter 2025 sessions.

Who can benefit from the exemption scholarship program?

The UdeM exemption scholarship is intended for international students (except French and French-speaking Belgian students).

To be eligible, the candidate must:

  • Have received an offer of admission to a study program at UdeM (as of Fall 2020)

  • Not be enrolled in an independent study program or short undergraduate program as of the Winter 2024 session, e.g., certificate, major, minor, short program or preparatory year program for university studies

  • Have valid study authorizations (CAQ and study permit) for all sessions of their study program

  • Be continuously enrolled full time (unless absence is approved) for their entire study program

"SI-UK has been a crucial part of my UK journey. They assisted me in obtaining my bachelor's degree in August 2019 and now, they've aided me in securing admission to a top design university in London for my master's. The counselors at SI-UK offer personalised support to each applicant, helping us in each and every step including the final stage of obtaining our CAS letter once we receive the offer."

I am grateful to my counselor and the entire team for guiding me through the visa application process and every other aspect. Thank you, SI-UK, for helping me pursue my dream."

"Last year, I reached out to SI-UK, Jaipur for my Master’s journey, and it has been an incredibly fulfilling and successful experience. From guiding me through the application process to assisting with letters of recommendation and statement of purpose, and even following up with universities, SI-UK provided comprehensive support at every step of the journey. They went the extra mile, assisting with admissions, fee processing, accommodation arrangements, visa guidance, and coordination on medical checkups. I firmly believe that my admission to the University of Birmingham wouldn't have been possible without SI-UK. I highly recommend SI-UK to anyone seeking admission to a UK or Ireland university."

In September, I sought assistance from SI-UK for my studies in the UK, with a planned intake for January 2023. With the support of my counsellor who made exceptional efforts, I smoothly navigated the application process which culminated in the timely acquisition of my UK student visa hassle-free. I wholeheartedly endorse SI-UK to fellow students aiming to pursue their dreams of studying in the UK. Thank you!
