International students will make up about a quarter of those studying at Fanshawe College this fall, and a school official says without that cash domestic students would suffer.

At Fanshawe, international students pay $13,000 for tuition, more than four times that of Canadian students. 

"We have had no choice but to look for alternative revenue streams in order to stay relevant and contemporary for our domestic audience," Curtis said. 

Two years ago internationals made up 12 per cent of Fanshawe's student population.
