Province of Saskatchewan Markets Abroad for Students- CANADA

Source: The PIE News

Saskatchewan has launched a new international education strategy that aims to increase the number of tertiary-level international students in the province by 75 percent over the next five years, in a bid to bring in qualified labor and build international trade relationships.

The Post-Secondary International Education Strategy also includes plans to increase outgoing student numbers by 50 percent and foster more global research collaborations.

In order to attract an annual 6,200 foreign students, the provincial government is developing a marketing strategy to promote Saskatchewan as a study destination. It will also clarify the provincial and federal immigration pathways for international students to live and work in Saskatchewan. A new International Future Scholarship will help to boost outgoing numbers. In its first year, the annual scholarship will send up to 20 students abroad for business-focused studies in priority markets.
