The future of the world's mobile students to 2025 (1097)

The future of the world’s international education sector is dependent upon several key driving factors. An assessment of these and how they intersect with each other allows us to better understand the risks that may lie ahead when developing strategies in international education. In this session, British Council Education Intelligence will present the findings of its new biannual report, The future of the world’s mobile students, focusing on extended forecasts of key international student mobility indictors and markets to 2025. This research builds upon previous British Council forecasting work, including The shape of things to come: higher education global trends and emerging opportunities to 2020, and predicts the number of international students alongside inbound and outbound students and bilateral flows from more than 50 key countries.
