ICEF Monitor – New study maps important shifts in international undergraduate enrolment
15 Dec 2015
A new report from the UK Higher Education International Unit describes a fast-growing market for international undergraduate students, one that has seen enrolment in major destination countries grow by 30% between 2007 and 2014.
The following table summarises these changes, and it reveals a number of interesting insights:
- Non-EU undergraduate enrolment in the UK grew by 46% from 2007, outpaced only by the US and Canada which grew 52% and 70% respectively over the same period;
- That significant growth in market share for North American destinations meant that the UK’s market share essentially held steady between 2007/08 and 2013/14, with a 0.5% increase in share compared to 3% growth for the US and 2.8% for Canada;
- In keeping with its fastest-overall growth during the period, Canada was the greatest gainer in market share in percentage terms with a 20.2% increase relative to its 2007/08 share;
- In terms of 2013/14 share, slightly more than four in ten international undergraduates choose the US, followed by 17.1% for the UK, 16.4% for Canada, and 13.5% for Australia;
- Taken together, those four countries host nearly nine out of every ten undergraduate students received by the competitive set of destinations considered by the report.
