Georgian College reacts to caps on International Students

Posted: 2024-01-25 09:50:38 By: thebay

Georgian College says that it continues to work with government regarding the implications of the announcement regarding the cap on international study permit applications.

The college maintains that international students are valued contributors to our classrooms, communities and economy with about 6,300 of their 12,488 full-time students coming from 86 countries.

Kevin Weaver, the college’s president says “The only way we’ve been able to deliver the labour force and programs that our communities and employers rely on was to increase international enrolment.”

Weaver says he is disappointed that the government has introduced these policy changes without consultation to understand the far reaching and damaging impacts that will follow.
