Forecasting International Student Mobility by the British Council

The British Council has partnered with the Economist Intelligence Unit on a new project designed to predict international student demand for education. According to the British Council the project “revisits Vision 2020 (a British Council report from 2004 forecasting the global demand for international student places in English speaking destination countries) and builds on its strengths. However, the methodology used differs and so do the outputs. The model has been piloted in China and will be rolled out across the UK priority sending countries over the coming year. All macroeconomic market data used in the predictions will be updated frequently. The forecasting tool has statistical robustness which means that all of the findings can be measured against a degree of statistical confidence.” You can access more information here: www.britishcouncil.org/eumd-information-forecasting-student-mobility.htm
