August 25, 2017

The University of Prince Edward Island has begun recruiting in eight new countries in an effort to grow its international enrolments. CBC reports that this year, the university has begun working with recruiters in countries that include Pakistan, Bangladesh, Latin American countries, and parts of the Caribbean. “We're always looking for new markets,” says Barb Campbell, director of recruitment and international relations at UPEI. Current figures show that the efforts are paying off. While the university had only 400 international students registered five years ago, they have roughly 1,000 registered for September 2017. CBC
