About the webinar:

Canada is becoming a major destination for internationally mobile students; it is now the fifth largest recipient of international students globally. This webinar will examine how visa and immigration policies, reasonable tuition rates, and a culture of inclusion converge under a national policy framework to create robust growth in international student enrollment. Our presenters will discuss Canada’s potential trajectory in terms of international enrollment, and examine how other nations can emulate Canada’s success.

Gain insights into:

  • Current international student enrollment trends in Canada
  • Underlying factors driving student mobility
