In recent years, the international education industry has experienced remarkable growth. The following factors have contributed to the student’s learning ability and study abroad options:

  • Immigration policy
  • Government support in countries (increase or decrease) for certain occupations.
  • A strong increase in a group of nationalities / or immigration status in some countries.
  • The current political status of UK and US countries
  • The development of education in some countries there are many study destinations for students to choose from.
  • Enhancing concerns about the safety of international students here are many options for studying.
  • Students want to “study abroad” but still live in their home countries (eg MOOCs, transnational education systems, online learning and distance learning systems)

As we conduct a more rigorous review, verification, these same factors are tending to lead to some noticeable changes on the chart to compare top international study destinations. gender.

The annual growth of the world’s leading overseas study destinations is based on the two most recent reports of the respective countries.

It can be seen that the United States and the United Kingdom are the two countries that still hold first and second positions respectively in consideration of the total number of international students attending. However, behind these figures, we can see that the annual growth rate is very small compared to countries like China, Canada, Australia, Russia, and Japan.

In 2016 and 2017, although many universities in the UK and the United States are highly ranked and prestigious on the education system of the countries in the global market, the enrollments only increase slightly. The cause of this is speculated to be related to the political environment of the countries (eg work rights are cut for international students in the UK, issues related to Brexit .. also in the US, President Trump’s immigration ban also affects certain citizens from some Muslim countries.

It is interesting to note that although in the context of the country there is a challenge in recruiting international students to participate, there has been a significant increase in the field of transnational teaching organized by the University in England. Currently, many international students study in the UK only then the number of international students studying in the UK.


The insignificant growth in the United States and the United Kingdom is a consequence of other countries pushing to attract international students. Canada has recorded an increase of about 20% in international students enrolling in 2017 (about 41% in the period 2015-2017), offering attractive job opportunities and resident opportunities for students. staying after the learning process became an important factor to consider whether it was a stable study abroad country.

In 2018, this brought considerable competition to the United States on the basis of cost value, a reputation for safety and an open political and social environment. Canada is increasingly becoming an attractive study abroad country for countries like India and Vietnam, in addition to Iran and Bangladesh. The number of international students attending Canada is expected to reach 450,000 students by 2022 and in 2017 alone, the target is 494,000 international students.


In Australia, international enrollments have reached new levels of development in 2017, with 13% over the previous year and a total of 624,000 foreign students. Australia is currently the second most popular destination for university students from China and India, with significant numbers from other Asian markets such as Korea, Vietnam, and Thailand. Some higher education analysts have predicted that the number of foreign students attending Australia at higher levels will be higher than the number of international students in the UK by 2019 if this trend continues to increase.

Like Canada, Australia is competing for its reputation for safety and quality of teaching, while being close to Asian countries is also a plus. Australia’s international student enrollment target is now 720,000 by 2025 and is still on the right track. Over the years, the Australian government has had strong support for various industries, along with identifying the international education industry as one of the five areas of super development to help improve the transition process. Australia from a resource economy to a knowledge economy and modern services.


China, meanwhile, has boomed to become the 5th most popular study abroad destination in the world. A total of 489,200 international students participated in China in 2017. This number has increased by 10.5% compared to 2016 and brought this country to the long-term goal of more than 500,000 students by 2020.

The explosion of leading organizations as well as attractive scholarship programs (especially for students who participate in degree programs after graduation) along with China’s strong economy, Ensuring the promotion of investment in the education sector is considered to be a significant factor for most international students in this country. In 2017, China attracted mainly students from countries such as South Korea, Thailand, Pakistan, the United States, India, Russia, Japan, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, and Laos.

Nearly two-thirds of all students (65%) come from markets with the goal of “One Belt, One Road” of China, this is a large trade program and invested by countries. foreign links the overseas study markets, along the traditional Silk Road across Europe and Asia. “By the end of 2017, China will be the most popular destination for international students in Asia,” said the Chinese Ministry of Education.


Another Asian country that is also experiencing impressive growth in Japan, where the number of international students has grown continuously over the past five years. As of May 5, 2017, there are 267,040 foreign students studying in the country, an increase of 11.6% compared to 2016, according to the Japan Student Services Organization (JASSO). The goal of Japan is to have 300,000 international students by 2020 and achieve that goal by the end of 2018 or early 2019 if this growth trend continues.

China and Vietnam continue to be the main countries with students coming to Japan to study – although other countries such as Sri Lanka, Indonesia and Myanmar are developing overseas markets – and all the top ten countries Japan is located in Asia.

The success of Japan in attracting more international students is due to many factors, but the most remarkable thing is the deep understanding of this country for international students when giving them the ability to Highly recruited when they decide to choose Japan as a study abroad destination. The Japanese government has spent some time to support internships, help find jobs after graduation, supplement Japanese courses and have more streamlined processes for TB visas the dynamics of international students.


Although the goal is to enroll 350,000 international students by 2020, Germany has exceeded its target according to official statistics, confirming that 358,900 foreign students are studying at schools. German university in 2017, up 5.5% from the previous year. Germany is currently the sixth largest research destination in the world, after the US, UK, Australia, Canada, and China.

China is still Germany’s most important market, bringing 35,000 students in 2017 and contributing 8.5% to growth. The number of Indian students in Germany even increased stronger (13%) and in 2017, German universities enrolled an additional 13,540 Indian students. Countries like Iran, America, South Korea, Pakistan, Syria, and Tunisia have sent more students to Germany than in 2016, while Russia – Germany’s third most important international student market has come down.

Only in the last few years, Germany’s international enrollment efforts have been strongly motivated by the free education policy for international students, improved employment opportunities in the learning process and after graduation, continue to expand English language programs at universities in Germany.


The development of attracting international students in France is somewhat more modest, closer to the UK than in other countries like Germany, Canada, China, and Australia. As of 2016, the most recent published data shows that there has been an annual increase of 4.6% and that there have been 325,000 international students enrolled in France. While the number continues to increase in France – with a combined growth of just over 12% in the two periods of 2015-2016 – this country’s market share has declined in the past few years.

Africa still plays the role of France’s most important international student market. There are more than 4 of the 10 international students in France from Africa, this continent has provided an important amount of enrollment for France over the past five years (including Morocco with a 15% growth since November 2011 and Cong wood at + 24%.

The remarkable African growth markets of France are largely in Europe. Includes Italy, Spain, Portugal, Belgium, and the United Kingdom. France has set a goal to build an international student base of 20% of the total number of graduate students by 2025. This means the recruitment of about 470,000 international students based on current data.
