The Pre-University program at Canadian Independent College is an excellent and cost effective
program for international students seeking university and college placements outside of their
country of origin.

Pre-University programs are essential for most international students. They allow for a transition
year that allows students to adapt to a more comprehensive style of learning. Our students learn
and grow in a disciplined and nurturing environment. That is why we have a 100% university
placement record.

Immigration and international students

Over the past decade, the number of visa students and new immigrants coming to Canada with a
university degree has grown strongly. There are several reasons to expect that this trend
will continue to place upward pressure on enrolment demand. Several recent studies project very strong
increases in international student demand for Canadian higher education over the coming
decade, with particularly strong growth from East Asia. In 2007, there were 2.8 million international
tertiary students worldwide, representing a 53 percent increase since 1999.16 A report produced
by IDP Education Australia estimates that by 2025 there will be 3.7 million international tertiary students
worldwide, 47 percent of whom will be Asian.17 While strong growth in international student numbers is
expected to continue over the next 20 years, the competition for those
students, especially the best and brightest among them, is also expected to intensify.
