With decreasing enrolments in secondary education, Canadian schools seem to be facing a struggle. As per the sources, for the international students, Canada, unlike UK, US or even Australia, is not in the top 5 preferred list of destinations. Specifically, in the Atlantic provinces of Canada, the fall in the enrolment may have been a huge challenge forcing universities to gear up their international enrolment breakthrough to greater levels.
At some point, universities in Canada failed to realise that they have over-built structures or over-hired faculty, to foresee possible wastage of resources. Nonetheless, increase in international students promises hope for the impending financial ruin, by bulking the opportunity to protect some universities from declining.
According to the officials, students from India, China, Pakistan and South Korea constituted the largest number of international students in Canada. Rest of the majority were from the UK, US, Sweden and Australia. Also, Indian and Pakistani students who enroll in Canadian universities deliver higher quality, without inconsistency, exceeding that of higher-ed institutions elsewhere.
With the enrolment crunch impacting the undergraduate student population in Canada, more number of candidates from India have better opportunities to enroll in Canadian universities.
Government plays an important role in helping applicants secure admissions abroad. Commercial banks in India can increase their chances of building future clientele by providing extended loans for higher education to those aspirants willing to study abroad. Before considering the plan to move abroad, commercial agencies can invest in training applicants in areas such as foreign culture, language, etiquettes and so on, to empower their road to success.
