MARKET INSIGHTS

International Education Survey 2014

The aim of the research was to explore the attitudes of students towards studying abroad and the resources available to them.


In August 2014, International Student Admissions Service (ISAS) commissioned a survey of 1,368 International students from across 93 countries. Our aim was to explore the attitudes of students towards studying abroad, and their opinions both positive and negative.

This has given us a better understanding of the information available for potential international students, as well as how the research and application process of international study can be improved and made easier.

Throughout the feedback that we received, we found there are many different motivators for students wanting to study abroad, whether it is a childhood dream, family expectations or because of a lack of safety in their home country.

90% of our sample are currently going through the research and application process and have shared their positive experiences as well as their frustrations.
