International students a boon for Windsor schools, economy

January 5, 2016

Providing education for international students has become a major growth area for Windsor, according to the Windsor Star. While international students make up 11% of the student body at the average Ontario university, they make up 20% at the University of Windsor. “If suddenly all the non-resident, international people left the University of Windsor, it would be same if they all left Canada. There’d be a huge impact,” said uWindsor President Alan Wildeman. Over the past five years, international graduate enrolment has risen from 29% to 54% and international undergraduate enrolment has risen from 7.4% to 9.3%. International students who remain in the country after completing their credential can also provide a substantial benefit to the region. Windsor Star
