Have you ever considered studying abroad? What factors do you consider while thinking about studying abroad? Do you take into account excellent and globally recognized degrees, cost-effective courses, a safe study location, and a friendly and multicultural environment? The good news is that you can find all of these and more in Canada, making it one of the most popular study locations for Nigerian and other international students. Statistics have shown that in the last five years, the demand for Canadian college programs from international students has skyrocketed as an increasing amount of international students are applying year in year out to Canadian schools.
Of a significant fact is that in 2016, approximately 80,000 Canadian student visa applications for college studies were filed. By 2019, this amount had increased to almost 180,000. It is undeniable that Canadian institutions are a big draw for students from all around the world. In 2019, the Canadian international education sector had a watershed moment. Over 400,000 international students sought study visas, with over 250,000 having their applications approved.
In Canada, education is incredibly essential, and it is held to very high standards. Canada is one of the most popular foreign education destinations, notably in Nigeria. A degree earned from a Canadian university is internationally recognized and highly appreciated in the labor market. Universities in Canada are well-known for their research-intensive nature.
In as much as the epidemic produced a major decline in 2020. Study permit application volumes declined by 48%, while approved study permit volumes plummeted by 56%. The college industry was particularly badly affected, with total study permits issued decreasing by more than 60%. However, Canada is already witnessing a remarkable post-pandemic rebound, which you should take advantage of as the following year will see high approval rates from Canadian schools. More than half of all new study permits were accepted between January and April 2021. The growing popularity of Canada’s Post-Graduate Work Permit Program is one key element fueling this development (PGWPP). Many overseas students who want to pursue permanent residence (PR) paths enroll in two- to three-year college programs and then apply for a PGWP once their studies are completed. As students are becoming less financially stable, they seek a safe haven that can accommodate lesser expenses even as the pandemic and economic conditions worsen. Thanks to lower tuition costs, shorter program timelines, and PGWP eligibility, international students are looking to Canadian colleges as top study abroad destinations.
