“At the heart of the Lancaster strategy and community are our international students and partnerships. Our links with China are key to our ambition to create a global ecosystem of teaching, research and engagement that is of mutual benefit to Lancaster, our partners, staff and students.
We are committed to offering Lancaster students a transnational educational experience that provides our graduates with a global outlook.”
Prof. Simon Guy, Pro-Vice-Chancellor Global for Digital, International, Sustainability, Development
“Because of the size of the Chinese market, the learning potential within that community is astonishing. To be able to make connections between China and Canada through learning is an immense opportunity for Athabasca University.
Now, because of our technology, we can adapt the learning, the learning environment and the platform itself to be culturally appropriate for the learner.”
Dr. Neil Fassina, President
“The university is international and have been proudly international. We’re nearly 200 years old, the third oldest in Australia. Chinese students are a very important part of what makes our university international and multicultural. Nearly 30% of our students are international and they come from about 107 countries across the world.
Chinese students are a part of this multicultural fabric of campus life. They add vibrancy, life, vigor, excitement and great intellectual capital as well. They are a critical part of what makes Adelaide University an exciting place. They also add that same level of excitement and cultural diversity to the city. Adelaide is one of the oldest multicultural cities as well. Our Chinese students here contribute to the richness of the community.”
Prof. Jacqueline Lo, Pro Vice-Chancellor – International

“International students bring diversity, top talent, high skills sets, and motivation to provide long-term economic, social and cultural benefits to our province. Prior to the pandemic, international students contributed over $400M to Manitoba’s GDP and supported over 4,250 jobs throughout the province. International students contribute a significant portion of revenue for advanced education institutions.
In 2018, China was the number one source country for all study permit holders in Manitoba across all study levels, making up 22 per cent of total study permit holders in the province.
The economic impact of students from China studying in communities across Canada represents the largest single source of revenue from China, after commodities.”
