When it comes to choosing a medical school, cost is a major consideration. After undergoing what is unquestionably one of the most difficult educational experiences of any specialist, the reality is that the loans you are carrying are likely to have a significant impact on what you practice, where you practice, your ability to pursue more education and how much you can “give back” in charitable and community work.
Here are a few quick things to know about Saba’s tuition and fees:
Affordable: Saba has always been committed to maintaining an affordable tuition. Among the top tier international medical schools located in the Caribbean, Saba has one of the most affordable tuitions: a full 30-40 percent lower than some of the others. (See the chart below.)
Straightforward: We publish our fees and tuition on our website (http://saba.edu/admissions/financial-information) and work closely with students on loans and payment arrangements. Our goal is to make the process as straightforward and transparent as possible. We don’t do a lot of marketing and advertising. We also don’t suddenly discover “scholarship” funds to attract students. We focus on being affordable and attracting the best possible students.
Student Loans: In addition to being one of the very few international medical schools that are approved to be part of the U.S. Federal Direct Student Loan program, Saba’s tuition structure fits in with the financial resources available to Canadian students, both for provincial loans and private sources of funding.
