Asian Students are on the Rise in Canada!

Posted on August 22nd, 2012 by Annemarie Keller

Canada is looking to make a greater effort to attract more Asian students to Canada.  The president at the University of British Columbia (UBC), Stephen Toope wrote a paper titled Strengthening education and research connectivity between Canada and Asia, released on August 7th, 2012. The paper calls for the creation of a high-profile Canadian scholarship program for undergraduate students and a significant expansion of the Vanier Canada scholarship program for graduate students. He also feels Canada must strive to develop educational partnerships with Asian countries rather than simply act as a recruiter.

With these efforts you can expect that Asian students will be on the rise in Canada! Asia is already the world’s largest source of international students and the number of Asians looking to study abroad is expected to rise significantly in the coming years. Universities in Canada have already been successful in recruiting international students. Currently, China is Canada’s top source country for international students.
