Main topic • Beyond future and career prospects: Understanding what tomorrow’s international students really want The decision-making process for prospective international students is heavily influenced by career prospects and future opportunities. However, several other factors also play a role, some more important than others, such as institution reputation, teaching quality, student life, cost of living, cultural alignment, sustainability, inclusion, and more. The final decision for a school, destination and programme is always the result of a combination of all these different factors and their relevance evolves over time. In this podcast episode, we dive into the recent findings of two major international student surveys: the QS International Student Survey and the 2023 Global Student Experience report by i-Graduate. We'll discuss how to interpret these findings, compare them to past surveys, and explore how educational institutions and recruitment agencies can strategically leverage these insights to enhance their competitive advantage.
