No surprise here:

"The Canadian government issued 6,349 study permits to Americans in 2016, up from 5,683 the previous year. (Final figures were not yet available for 2017.) "

@ton Reflects what we are hearing anecdotally in the BC psot-sec system. Not just US study permits up, but all international study permits on the rise.

@clintlalonde
I see mostly one term one year study abroad perspective but many of my students are hesitant about the US now.

And, friend's daughter has received admission to university in Boston but is waiting for result from Ryerson. Partly because of location. 2 years ago she had her heart set on NYC or Boston but no longer. Her mom will be a lot happier about fees in Canada.

Scholar Social

A Mastodon instance for academics

Scholar Social is meant for: researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.

We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

"A Mastodon profile you can be proud to put on the last slide of a presentation at a conference"

"Official" monthly journal club!

(Participation is, of course, optional)

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.

Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @socrates@scholar.social and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
