Product Description

Our aim in this report is to explore the shared motivations and priorities of prospective students around the world, as well as significant regional differences, through the following themes:

  • Motivations for studying abroad: Why internationally, why at an internationally known university, why in a particular location?
  • Employability as a key driver for international mobility: Underlying contexts and concerns, beliefs about how to become more ‘employable’, impact on choice of university.
  • Rankings & other information sources: How and why rankings are used, growing importance of peer reviews, varying sources and influences depending on location.
