Over the last five years, the number of international college students more than doubled, rising from 60,318 enrolments in 2015/2016 to 153,360 in 2019/2020. The number of international university students increased from 168,606 to 235,422 over the same period.
Overall in 2019/2020—taking into consideration both Canadian and international students—63.1% of all enrolments were in universities, while 36.9% were in colleges.
The proportion of international students studying in colleges and universities varied across provinces and territories. For example, almost a third of college students in Ontario (29.9%), and more than one in five in British Columbia (23.3%), were from outside Canada.
