The main reason why thousands of students are choosing Canada as their best option to find their study program, is due to the fact they will also have the opportunity to transition into permanent residents after their studies are over.
New report shows how essential this factor is when it comes to choosing the place to study among international students that have decided to study abroad. The report shows an increased number of international students enrolling in Canadian universities for the 2017/2018 academic year. There are many stakeholders that have attributed this increase to the growing perception of Canada as a social and stable study destination especially now, in the wake of various political events worldwide. Only in the recent months, increasing numbers of international students are choosing to study in Canada, and then, immigrate after graduation.
