A "megatrend" of rising international undergraduate mobility has been identified in a new study from research body World Education Services (WES). It suggests more students are studying abroad at a younger age and are able to pay for longer courses. It also offers institutions practical recommendations on how to tap the evolving market.
Acceptances of non-EU students to UK undergraduate courses remained stable this year, based on UCAS end of cycle figures, in a further sign that interest in the tertiary sector is somewhat cushioned by tougher visa policies. But others warn market share is falling and that an enrolment slide could hit HE next year.
