In July 2021, IDP Connect conducted a survey with more than 6,000 students from 20 countries, including international students currently studying at 527 universities and colleges in Canada, Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, and the United States, to understand their interest and evaluation of different study destinations. The survey results show that Canada is the most popular destination for international students. Surveyed students stated that there are a few main reasons why they choose Canada as their first choice: high-quality education, employment opportunities after graduation, support for international students, and a diverse and inclusive environment.
