Canada ranked 7th as a favourite choice of foreign students
According to a study by the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD) and the German Center for Higher Education Research and Science Studies (DZHW), over 5 million students went to different universities around the globe to pursue higher education last year. If we look at the top destination of choice, U.S is the favourite destination of choice for most of the international students. Almost 19% of the students willing to go abroad chose US universities. The second top destination was the United Kingdom, which was chosen by 8.5% of the students. Canada was ranked as the 7th favourite choice of foreign students. The language of instruction in Canadian universities is English. The country was selected by 3.7% of the foreign students to pursue higher education.

The number of study permits issued to Chinese students increased by 15%
In spite of the tense Canada-China relations and fewer Chinese visitors to Canada, the number of Chinese international students in Canada continues to increase. Specifically, there were approximately 30,000 study permits issued to Chinese students from January to May 2019, compared to the 26,000 and 18,000 study permits issued during the same time period in 2018 and 2017. The increasing number of international students contributes to Canada’s economic development.
