CBIE Launches 2nd Edition of World of Learning; New trends in international education in Canada featured

The Canadian Bureau for International Education (CBIE) today released Canada’s global report on the state of international education in Canada.

“We’ve always had a mandate to share with our members and colleagues the latest statistics, long and short-term trends on our sector,” said Karen McBride, President and CEO of CBIE, launching the report at CBIE’s 47th annual conference.  “Together we are building a comprehensive resource that reflects the current opportunities and challenges facing international education in Canada today.”

Did you know?

  • Canada as an education destination: In 2011, Canada enrolled about 5% of internationally mobile students, making it the 7th most popular host country.
  • The Numbers are Growing: Canada’s international student population increased by 11% from 2011 to 2012, and 94% between 2001 and 2012.
  • Satisfaction Guaranteed:  CBIE’s 2013 International Student Survey demonstrates the satisfaction level remains high with 91% of students either very satisfied or satisfied with their study experience in Canada and 96% of students indicating that they would recommend Canada as a study destination.
  • Increasingly a First Choice Option: Only 20% of respondents indicated that they did not apply for studies in any country other than Canada – this is half of last year’s percentage suggesting that Canada is gaining popularity and increasingly is a top choice destination
