Recent political developments in the U.K. and U.S. bring into question whether those countries will continue to appeal to international students. Some argue that Brexit, changes to U.K. immigration policies, and Trump’s rhetoric will benefit competitor nations such as Canada, who also look to attract international students.
However, while politics has a major influence on the decision making of international students, other factors also play a role. Uri Carnat of IDP Education provides an overview of these factors and how they are currently impacting the international student landscape.
Uri looks at the latest international student statistics, focusing on Canada, the U.K., U.S., Australia, and New Zealand. In comparison with these countries, what are Canada’s advantages, and where is it falling short? How can Canada address its shortcomings?
Uri also provides insights on key international student source countries and how these developments will impact Canada.
