Foreign students boost business of education in B.C.

Business in Vancouver quoted Pamela Ratner, UBC’s vice-provost and associate vice-president, in a story about foreign students at B.C. universities.

Ratner said while students in B.C. make up about 70 per cent of undergraduates, the school believes “that domestic students, from all parts of B.C. and Canada, are well served and better prepared for life after graduation by exposure to the diversity of ideas, experiences and backgrounds that are found at an international university.”
