International student behaviours: November 2018

​This paper uses data from sources including Hotcourses Group, HESA, UCAS and the Home Office, to form a picture of international demand for UK higher education as well as demand for the likes of the US, Australia and Canada. 

We offer a comparison with our international competitors in terms of students enrolling with and studying at our universities, and then use the latest data on visa applications, and UCAS data for the EU, to indicate definite interest  shown in coming to study in the UK. 

The final section focuses on new data from Hotcourses Group’s international insights demand tool and offers valuable insights into areas of interest for students across  the world when they are researching their study options.
