The University of Alberta International Students’ Association (UAISA, herby ISA) condemns the International Tuition Fee Proposal for the Fall 2023 Cohort, which proposes a 6% increase in international tuition.
We were told, that we as international students are privileged, bluntly ignoring the sociocultural and financial hardships that many of us go through in Canada. Not only were we called privileged to be here, but the reason that was cited for our immigration was - poor education system in our home countries. These statements downplay hardships such as minority conflicts and socioeconomic crises in our respective countries. Many international students who came to the council were taken aback by such alienating and discriminatory remarks.
