As part of its strategic plan, Fanshawe has targeted a 50 per cent increase to international enrolments over five years. According to the school, by increasing international enrolment, the college will contribute to the province’s labour market gaps and strengthen the economy. It also contributes to the federal government’s plans to support economic recovery through immigration.
“Fanshawe is the gold standard in international education,” says Jonathan Kolber, CEO of ILAC. “Fanshawe’s leadership in student diversity and its student-first approach are strongly aligned with ILAC’s core values.
