CBU issues open letter, limits enrolment following concerns about international enrolment


Cape Breton University has issued an open letter and announced limited enrolment to one of its popular programs in response to international student enrolment concerns. The move comes in response to calls for change and questions about whether adequate supports are in place to handle the high influx of students after a recent house fire in the community resulted in the death of an international student. CBU responded to the concerns with an open letter that acknowledged the issues with the lack of affordable housing and employment in the area. The Winnipeg Free Press reports that the university will be limiting enrolment to its two-year post-baccalaureate diploma in business analytics, which is popular with international students, beginning in May 2023.
