Worldwide MOOC (Massive Open Online Courses) enrolment grew by nearly two-thirds in 2016 to reach 58 million students, with regional platforms, notably in Latin America and China, now drawing significant numbers of students.

Many courses now also support self-paced learning and more frequent course starts, with the result that many students are studying in smaller cohorts than in the recent past.

We continue our “From the Field” interview series today in conversation with Robert Wagubi, Executive Director of WR Education Placement Consultants in Uganda.

Mr Wagubi notes that Uganda’s burgeoning oil industry, in existence since only 2010, is a major new employer, and reveals that growing East African economies tend to draw students back home after overseas studies. He also offers tips about how to approach the Ugandan market, points to the recruiting success of Canada in particular, and discusses how to identify suitable partners in-market.

In an unscheduled live television address on 8 November, Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced the demonetisation of India’s ₹500 and ₹1,000 banknotes. Put simply, the Prime Minister declared the two banknotes would no longer be legal currency in India as of midnight that same day – only about four hours after his television appearance. The surprise move was designed to curb counterfeiting and corruption within the economy, including the very large amounts of so-called “black money” in India (that is, untaxed funds moving outside the official financial system).

The currency change is also reportedly intended to reshape India’s cash economy – by some estimates, as much as 90% of all transactions in the country are handled by cash – and to move the country toward a more modern financial system.

The ELT industry’s lawsuit against the South African government has been settled out of court. Under the terms of the settlement, students enrolled with the 22 member schools of the ELT peak body Education South Africa (EduSA) will now be eligible to receive a study visa for up to 18 months.

EduSA characterises the settlement as a “defining moment” for the country’s ELT sector – one that will help to reverse recent-year enrolment declines and expand South Africa’s share of the global market.

The number of international branch campuses (IBCs) continues to grow: there are now 249 IBCs enrolling an estimated 180,000 students worldwide.

IBC activity is shifting somewhat from the Middle East to Asia, and to China and Southeast Asia in particular. The US and the UK remain the leading home countries for IBC exporters, and account for nearly half of all IBCs between them.

Japan is a traditional powerhouse among outbound student markets but those numbers have of course been in decline for some time. More recently, however, there are signs of strengthening demand for study abroad among Japanese students.

Hiromi Shimamura is the president of the San Diego-based agency EduAbroad, and in the following video excerpt she shares four important tips for recruiters approaching the Japanese market.

There are reports of dramatic increases in US web traffic to Canadian university websites. A number of Canadian institutions are also reporting significant growth in admissions applications from US students this year.

Many attribute the spike in interest to the recent US presidential election but the relative affordability of higher education in Canada, along with increased recruiting in America on the part of Canadian universities, appear to be playing a part as well.

The number of Kazakhstani students studying abroad has more than doubled since 2006. The majority of outbound students are enrolled within the region, in Russia, Kyrgyzstan, and China in particular.

However, increasing numbers are also looking to major study destinations in the West, particularly in Europe and North America. The college-aged population will expand considerably over the rest of this decade and this is expected to fuel continued growth in outbound numbers.

At 2.7 million square kilometers, Kazakhstan is the ninth-largest country in the world and roughly the size of Western Europe. The name Kazakhstan derives from an ancient Turkic word meaning “indepe

We love a good student survey around here, and QS is out this month with an interesting new slice of data that focuses on the motivations of international postgraduate applicants from 11 emerging markets.

The survey zeroes in on four markets that are increasingly seen as significant emerging markets for international student recruitment: Nigeria, Indonesia, Brazil, and Turkey.

Canada became the latest major study destination to report on enrolment trends this week with the release of the annual A World of Learning report from the Canadian Bureau for International Education.

The report reveals that the number of international students in Canada increased by 8% in 2015, and that China and India continue to be the major drivers of that growth.
