The number of international students worldwide is expected to increase from 3.3 million today to 7.2 million by 2025. British Columbia is well positioned to play an even more significant role in this sector in coming years.
International education is the two-way flow of students, educators and ideas between countries, and its expansion helps to create new relationships between British Columbia and other regions.
British Columbia’s education system is among the most respected in the world. We offer high quality education and research opportunities to students from around the globe. Our integrated education system is a global model for progressive, flexible education.
Our colleges, universities, school districts and independent schools are also leaders in developing innovative international partnerships. These partnerships help to attract international students to the province and create opportunities for British Columbia students to study abroad.
