The Ukrainian government passed an ambitious higher education reform package into law on 1 July 2014, marking a major turning point for an education system that, as the British Council has pointed out, has gone “largely unreformed since Soviet times.” The reforms are wide-ranging and include provisions that will bring Ukrainian universities into alignment withContinue reading...

Nigeria derives 70% of its government revenue from crude oil sales and so the collapse of world oil prices over the past year is a significant challenge – especially when coupled with ongoing national security concerns.

Yet with a rapidly expanding middle class, and total tertiary enrolment projected to double by 2024, the country remains a key emerging market for international education.

For the past several years, experts and higher education practitioners have been touting the benefits of marrying online and traditional face-to-face learning. This approach - "blended learning” - has become more prominent in higher education in recent years and typically combines aspects of both digital and in-person pedagogy.

Saudi Arabia is currently the leading sending country for Intensive English Programmes in the United States. Since the implementation of the King Abdullah Scholarship Programme in 2005, the Saudi government has sent tens of thousands of students to the US and many of those needed extensive English training before being able to undertake university studies.

It appears, however, that important changes are now afoot in terms of the level of support available for language study.

http://monitor.icef.com/2015/07/report-saudi-language-study-in-the-us-to-be-capped-at-six-months/
Every major English-speaking study destination has a keen interest in international student enrolment in its Intensive English Programmes (IEPs). IEPs are both a significant international education segment in their own right, and an important indicator of overall enrolment trends as many IEP students will continue to further studies in the host country after their languageContinue reading...

New data from Education New Zealand provides the final word on a strong 2014 for the country’s international education sector. International student numbers were up 13% over 2013 to reach a total of 110,198 for the year. This sharply reverses the previous two-year trend of declining enrolment and marks the highest international enrolment levels in New Zealand in more than a decade.

Community colleges are increasingly becoming a pathway for international students to access US higher education and are expanding their international recruitment to both increase their revenue base and diversify their student bodies.

http://monitor.icef.com/2015/07/us-community-colleges-stepping-up-international-recruitment/
In the last several months, community colleges have been in the spotlight in discussions of US higher education. In January 2015, US President Barack Obama announced his plan to make community college free for US citizens. However, less attention has been paid to a smaller but significant population within US community colleges – international students.Continue reading...

We have important updates on language training in two English-speaking destinations this week: the US and Australia. One is surging, the other is facing some uncertainty due to an apparent policy change from its biggest sending market. You will find complete reports for both below.

We were working our way through a series of articles on emerging markets this week – see reports on Azerbaijan and Colombia below – when breaking news from the UK seized our full attention.

Media reports over the weekend suggested the government was about to come forward with measures to largely eliminate work rights for non-EU students. Indeed, the government officially announced new policies to this effect on Monday but with a more narrow scope than first expected. The new measures pertain only to non-EU students enrolled at publicly funded further education colleges.

The news, needless to say, is a serious blow for a FE sector that has already seen its international enrolment decline significantly over the last three years. Please see our extended report below for more details and industry reaction.
