The United States has been crowned as the top choice for international students to pursue their higher education, says a survey by the Education Ministry. Last year, Canada had topped the list but this year it has been shifted to the second position.
The survey further suggested that almost 18 per cent of students consider the US as their top choice for studying. The second most favoured place is that of Canada which has 17 per cent votes.
Despite the long lines for visas, high quality of education and job opportunities, the US draws many students from all over the world. While Canada is famous due to its flexible permanent residency policies (PR) as well as its strong education system.
