Survey responses from universities highlight the importance of personal connections, effective compensation, and training in productive agency relationships.

Another continuing survey effort highlights the importance of training for agency counsellors and identifies the most valuable topics for ongoing training.

A new global survey reports a continuing shift, by global region, in demand for graduate studies in business.

The annual survey tracks growth in application volumes for graduate business schools in Europe, Asia, and Canada, but declining numbers in the US.

South Africa’s Department of Higher Education and Training has announced that it will formally recognise the country’s ELT schools as fully accredited private colleges

This recognition extends only to members of the country’s peak body for ELT schools: Education South Africa (EduSA). The main effect of the announcement is that students applying to EduSA member schools are now eligible to formally apply for South African Study Permits, thus allowing them to pursue studies in the country for extended periods of time.

A 2017 survey of international students in Canada finds that more than nine in ten are satisfied or highly satisfied with their studies in Canada. Most students indicated that they chose Canada because of the quality of its education system, and its reputation as a safe and welcoming country.

Six in ten survey respondents indicated their plans to pursue permanent residency in Canada after their studies, and seven in ten intended to stay and work in the country following graduation.

New Zealand has formally launched an international education strategy that will help guide the sector’s development through 2030. The strategy aims for a significant increase in the economic impact of the sector over the next decade, but otherwise places the emphasis on the quality of New Zealand education and the satisfaction of visiting students.

Capping off a month of important policy and sector announcements, Education New Zealand will also relaunch its agent training and agent recognition scheme later this year.

The nearly 8,000 Saudi scholarship students in Canada have been instructed to return home immediately. Their scholarships have been suspended and the Saudi government is working on an emergency plan to transfer them to institutions in other study destinations.

The announcement comes in the midst of a rapidly unfolding diplomatic dispute between Saudi Arabia and Canada.

The number of small US colleges forced to close each year has continued to climb from 2015 levels. In 2015, five institutions closed their doors; this grew to 11 colleges in 2017 and the closure rate is projected to continue to increase through 2019.

The growing number of closures reflects a persistent challenge for many small institutions where tuition revenues are declining even as costs continue to increase.

Irish higher education continues to internationalise but institutions responding to a recent survey have called for expanded efforts to promote Ireland as a study destination. Survey respondents also identified a need for expanded support services for foreign students in Ireland.

In a related development, the Irish government also recently introduced new legislation to strengthen quality controls in international education.
