With more than, 3,00,000 Indian students studying overseas, India is the second largest source of International students after China. The political turmoil triggered by the results of the UK's referendum to leave European Union or Brexit and the changes in US immigration and visa policies have convinced most Indian students to opt for Canada as it offers various courses. Believed to be a place full of friendliest people in the world, Canada is establishing itself as one of the most attractive destinations for international students. Not only are these courses more specialized and career-oriented, but after completion of the course, the students get a work permit for three years. Thus, Canada is one of the most sought-after hub for higher education. The country places a lot of its importance on education and a degree acquired from the Canadian Universities is globally recognized. Ranked as 4th in the world for scientific research, the quality education offered by Canada is highly valued in international job markets.
Canada is witnessing an increase in the number of students interested in pursuing higher education. International students' enrolment keeps increasing with each year, being 495,525, according to Immigration Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) in 2017. This is already more than the forecasted numbers by IRCC for the year 2022 when Canada would be hosting 450,000 international students. With more than 100 universities and 200 colleges offering multicultural environment with people from all the religions and cultures, Canadians will make you feel home. In this issue of the Higher Education Review Magazine, we have showcased a list of "10 Most Promising Universities and Colleges in Canada for Indian Students 2019". As the cover story we feature, Toronto School of Management, a world-class business management educational institution working with industry leaders to design and deliver innovative and career-centric programs.
