Are universities shifting international student recruitment strategies?
The political and economic changes of the past year will have far-reaching impact on the future mobility patterns of students. The vote for Brexit and Trump’s triumph in the US presidential election, in the two largest destination countries for international students, revealed strong support for anti-immigration policies. The UK and the US are set on a path to creating more barriers to attracting and retaining international students. The two largest source countries of international students – China and India – experienced economic changes that decelerated the ambitions and ability of students to go abroad. The slowdown in economies will make some students more concerned about recovering the cost of education.
The combination of these changes in the leading source and destination countries indicates that institutions must brace themselves for a new environment of uncertainty, hyper-competition, and turbulence. This global online discussion (webinar) will bring together a panel of global experts to examine how they are adapting institutional strategies in a new environment. What are the strategic options institutions are considering in response to this turbulence? The discussion will highlight diverse perspectives to inform international enrolment strategies.
