Province Has Issues Retaining International Students After Graduation Even with Low Tuition: Osborne
Jul 19, 2021 | 6:10 AM
The province’s education minister says despite relatively low tuition, Newfoundland and Labrador did not have a good track record in retaining international students after graduation.
Tom Osborne says statistics show that while MUN attracts a large number of international students, few stay in the province after they earn their degrees. That, he says, shows that low tuition rates are not leading to greater retention of immigrants to the province.
Osborne says government has been looking at other ways to retain students coming to Newfoundland and Labrador for their post-secondary education.
