Laurentian announces tuition rate freeze for international students

Laurentian University has announced that it will be freezing international tuition rates. The move is intended to attract more international students to the institution and make Laurentian more competitive, as the institution has reportedly seen a recent drop in international students. “Historically, Laurentian has not had a large number of or a large proportion of international students on campus, when we compare with others in the sector,” said Laurentian registrar and associate vice-president of students Serge Demers. “So I think that’s certainly somewhere where we can grow the number of international students that are on our campus.” CBC reports that Laurentian will be increasing recruitment efforts in key countries, including India, China, Bangladesh, Vietnam, and Nigeria.
