Drop in international admission

Many universities across the country, including British Columbia and Ontario, have seen an increase in domestic enrollment and a decline in international enrollment. This is a step Study Conducted by CourseCompare, a platform to help connect students with courses and training programs.

Not all universities see a drop in international enrollment. There are some exceptions. For example, UBC Okanagan International has a nine percent increase in undergraduate enrollment. Overall, however, this study shows a nine percent drop in international enrollment across Canadian learning institutions. It is based on the official statistics of more than 50 companies across the country.

One possible explanation for this is that many Canadian colleges and universities are looking to expand their online education to the next semester. Some students, especially international students who pay higher tuition fees, may be reluctant to join until classes return to campus.

In addition, many international students have joined hands in practices such as acting, nursing and laboratory-based projects such as electrical engineering and film production. Programs like this can be considered to be very negatively affected as providing courses online is very challenging. An alternative is to present courses on campus with physical distance practices. In some cases, courses may be discontinued altogether.
