Every year, many of us dream of moving to rich countries like the US, UK, Canada, and Australia.

There seems to be less appeal to go to developing countries — those between rich countries and poor countries.

As of the end of 2022, data from Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada showed that 807,750 international students were holding valid study permits. 

During the 2021-22 academic year, 679,970 international students were studying in the UK.
