Did You Know? – UK Student Mobility Tracker

The United Kingdom takes its international students very seriously. Recently they released a mobility tracker that you can use to see how their international student levels have changed over the years.

It’s a fun toy to use for a few minutes to see how many Canadian students have gone to the UK each year, and also how many UK students have come to Canada.

Using it, however, shows something disturbing. Canada was slowly climbing the ranks in the popular destinations for UK students studying abroad until 2010. As of 2011, however, Canada has dropped right off the chart. It is not currently known whether this change is due to some change in the policies of Canada or the UK.
