Canada takes the crown for immigrants and international students

Traveling abroad has been almost impossible during the COVID-19 epidemic but it reassures those in Canada that we can enjoy, work, learn and live in such a beautiful world, and welcome those who want to even during pandemics like these.  

According to a recent survey by CEOWORLD, Canada ranks fourth in the world for international students. 

The United States is ranked first, with Australia and the United Kingdom ranked second and third respectively. 

The study ranked 46 countries for “equitable rating” in terms of their educational programs, access to quality teaching, the number of research institutes, and funding at universities. 

They also specialize in specialized technology, industrial communications, research institutes, higher education institutions, government spending on tuition fees, student visas, and postgraduate work visas. 

Countries have been awarded points out of a total of 100 points. 

“Studying abroad gives you more than just getting a degree,” CEOWORLD said in a statement. These include international language skills, job opportunities, and a rich cultural understanding of the world. 

United States North America 71.78 
Australia East Asia & Pacific 68.04 
United Kingdom Europe & Central Asia 67.16 
Canada North America 66.39 
France Europe & Central Asia 66.06 
Germany Europe & Central Asia 65.27 
Switzerland Europe & Central Asia 64.14 
Japan East Asia & Pacific 63.2 
Russia Europe & Central Asia 61.3 
10 China East Asia & Pacific 60.97 
11 Netherlands Europe & Central Asia 60.66 
12 New Zealand East Asia & Pacific 60.25 
13 Poland Europe & Central Asia 59.85 
14 United Arab Emirates Middle East & North Africa 59.65 
15 Sweden Europe & Central Asia 58.8 

While the United States, Australia and the U.K are ranked a little higher than Canada, during the Pandemic, Canada has managed to uphold their immigration bridge for so many applicants. Due to the recent changes in the US governments and new Covid strains in the U.K, people prefer to go to Canada. Australia also has its demerits when it comes to migration during the pandemic. Australia is comparatively expensive than these other countries and it takes longer to get your PR. This makes Canada one of the biggest providers in international education and immigration routes during the pandemic.
