Many students struggling to secure visa extensions or land a graduate job in the United States are now turning to Canada.

Last year saw a 28 percent jump in the number of Indian students arriving on Canadian campuses. This increase was followed by Nigerians at 20 percent and Chinese student application increasing by 11 percent.

Canada’s visa system allows graduate students to remain and work for up to three years whether or not they have a job at that time. The H-1B work visa in the U.S. lasts for three years but must be sponsored by an employer.
