uWaterloo "turning its sights on the world"

February 4, 2008

The University of Waterloo is "pulling out the stops" to boost its profile internationally, particularly in China, India, and the United Arab Emirates, and boost undergrad international students from 8% to 20% over the next decade. UW has always been "plugged in" internationally, from the development of the "Waterloo pump" to the founding of Engineers Without Borders. The new "Waterloo International" office on campus is establishing more exchanges, and overseas campuses in China and Abu Dhabi. International tuition, between $13,000 and $32,000 per year, is apparently among the highest in Canada.
