“After the pandemic hit, international students at Canadian universities were faced with a choice: continue their studies in Canada or return to their home countries to study remotely,” writes Marisa Coulton of Maclean’s. Drawing from the results of the International Prospective Student Study (IPSS), which was conducted by Academica Group and Maple Assist throughout this past summer, Coulton describes how the pandemic threw the future of international students into uncertainty. The article contains interviews with students from around the world who applied to attend Canadian postsecondary education in Fall 2020, and discusses how they have been impacted by the pandemic.
