This survey was conducted among 1,000 students from 8 countries belonging to Asia and the Middle East. This survey would benefit Canada immensely as it tries to attract double the number of students from abroad. In order to create more job opportunities and establishing a stable economy in the country, Canada will have about 4,50,000 offshore candidates by 2022.
For a Canadian full-time undergraduate program, the students pay an average of 5,700 dollars every year. For international students, the same would cost thrice the amount or an average of 19,500 Dollars every year. The Canadian government estimates that recruiting more offshore students could result in 86,000 additional jobs while the revenue would benefit by 10 billion dollars each year.
The Government of British Colombia is welcoming more international students in a bid to further enhance education and culture. B.C. is home for almost a third of all the international students enrolling in Canada. The second international student survey which began this month will conclude in December and the final report will be released in 2015.
