International student mobility is gradually changing directional flow, with the demands of a now global economy affecting more â€˜traditionalâ€™ patterns of student movement across borders. The rapid growth of international student mobility is part of a larger context in which tertiary education in general is expanding and indeed, as more and more students access tertiary education, more and more students access it overseas. Interestingly however, as overseas student numbers increase, market shares are stabilising, and in some cases decreasing, partly as a result of a diversification of market players. Importers of educational services are now also exporting them, prompting â€˜traditionalâ€™ destinations to develop more targeted recruitment strategies aimed at new overseas student â€˜sourcesâ€™, as well as at older ones.
This report outlines current patterns and trends in international student mobility worldwide, with reference to â€˜sourceâ€™ countries and recruitment strategy towards them across 12 destination countries. Within the overall context of value, it examines several of the factors now influencing overseas student decision-making, and how they are subsequently affecting mobility patterns. By analysing the bearing of migration policy, language and the effects of global recession on current mobility trends, it furthermore suggests how they and more largely, the global labour market and educational affordability may affect international student recruitment strategic policy in the coming years.
