London has more top-ranked universities than any other city in the world, and it consequently is a magnet for international students. A new report has found that the tuition fees paid by international students represent nearly 40% of the total fee income of London’s universities and return a net economic benefit of £2.3 billion to the UK economy.

“Indonesia is at a development crossroads,” says a recent World Bank report. It is now one of the 20 largest economies in the world and aims to break into the top 10 by 2030. However, a number of major trends and developments – notably a growing middle class, rapid urbanisation, and an opening up of regional markets in Southeast Asia – are leading to new challenges as well as new opportunities for the years ahead, and especially so for the country’s education system.

A majority of higher education institutions in 33 European countries say that increasing international revenue is not the main rationale behind their internationalisation initiatives. Instead, it is to improve the overall quality of education they are able to provide students. This is one of the major findings of a new study from the European Association of International Education (EAIE): The EAIE Barometer: Internationalisation in Europe.

ICEF Monitor Interview: Jan Capper, IALC, GAELA

“Surprisingly 75% of the world’s population actually doesn’t speak English,” says Jan Capper, Executive Director of the International Association of Language Centres (IALC). We sat down with her recently to explore the market for teaching languages other than English, and she quickly made a convincing case for why students are pursuing other foreign languages.

While English is the number one language for international communication, it is far from the only foreign language learned – and needed – in the global marketplace. See our accompanying article on the similarities between marketing English and languages such as Spanish, Russian and Mandarin: http://ow.ly/KPya5.

Chinese students are flocking to American higher education institutions. Nearly 275,000 students from China studied in the United States in 2013/14, an increase of 16.5% from the previous year.

For the fifth consecutive year, Chinese students were the largest national group among America’s international student population, and fuelling this growth is a massive surge in the popularity of American undergraduate programmes.

But MBA programmes are now facing increasing competition amid a rapidly changing marketplace. The number of graduate business programmes has dramatically increased in recent years, even as domestic demand in some developed economies has stalled or even fallen off.
