The USA recorded the worst drop of 4.4% in the number of Indian students coming to the country for higher education in 2019-20. This happened after a continuous growth of six years. The primary reasons for this decline are the USA’s restrictive attitude towards immigration and the pandemic that shook the entire world. Due to this pandemic, the figures are likely to fall further as far as the USA is concerned.
On the other hand, Canada created history in 2019 by inviting a maximum number of Indian students. Around 1.39 lakh Indian students were asked to Canada in this particular year, which is the highest ever in Canada and India’s history. With the latest announcement of Canada’s immigration plan, the number of international students will rise as they have better prospects of migrating to Canada with Canadian higher education.
Most of the students have deferred their study plans until next year, while some have switched to the online learning mode. International student numbers in these countries have taken a hit, but restrictions are being eased significantly in Canada as time passes. It has released the list of institutes that are COVID-19 prepared to invite international students.
Canada has offered lots of flexibility to the students who got stuck in their respective home countries. The post-graduate work permit eligibility has been retained for the students who complete even half of their program in Canada. Other than this, the Canada study permit’s two-stage approval made it easy for the students to complete the formalities later and start their studies online.
In all respects, Canada has emerged as the top study destination. Apart from the quality education and top-notch institutes, it is looking forward to retaining international talents through increased economic migration in the coming years. Therefore, it is the most favorable time to begin higher education in Canada.
