September 19 & 20, 2019

This fall (September 19 and 20, 2019), ANSUT (the Association of Nova Scotia University Teachers) will host a conference on International Students at Saint Mary’s University.

Nova Scotia hosted almost 14,000 international students in 2015, and that number continues to rise. Clearly, there are many benefits to welcoming international students to Nova Scotia. In addition to financial benefits, international students bring a cultural and intellectual diversity to our universities. But there are challenges as well, which range from overcapacity and differential fees to transportation, housing needs and other cultural nuances.

Join us at Saint Mary’s University in September to share perspectives with a wide array of stakeholders in university education in the province, including faculty, students, the government and university administration.

The conference opens with remarks from Dr. Robert Summerby-Murray, president of Saint Mary’s University and chair of the Canadian Bureau of International Education (CBIE). The conference line-up is still being confirmed, and can be found here.
