Canada gains European students, Brexit may be responsible for change: Editorial

April 11, 2022
Canada is gaining European students and this could be due to Brexit, writes Simon Baker. Baker draws on study permit data from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada to show that there was a 10%-80% increase of students last year from some Western European nations. The author suggests that this may be due to the fact that European students can no longer study at UK institutions with reduced tuition fees, as the increased number of European students in Canada has correlated with a sharp decrease in the number of EU students in Britain has sharply decreased.
