Asian students converge on 5 countries

International Edu News

There was a two-percentage-point increase in the share of internationally mobile students acrossOrganisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) countries between 2010 and 2017, according to the ‘Education at a Glance 2019’ report. Of all mobile students across the OECD, 56% came from Asia, but two-thirds of Asian students converge on only five countries: Australia, Canada, Japan the UK and the US. The UK and the US received more than 40% of all mobile students in OECD and partner countries

According to the report, English-speaking countries remain the most attractive destinations for international students. EU students represented 24% of all mobile students in the OECD report, but due to a preference for staying in Europe, they accounted for 42% of mobile students within EU OECD nations.
Factors such as the growing middle class in emerging economies, the cost of international flights, the spread of internet and social media and the use of English as a working language are also playing a role.
