Global Student Mobility
Students from all over the world are choosing to study abroad in larger and larger numbers. According to a report by Studyportals, the number of globally mobile international students has been on the rise and is projected to reach 6.9 million students by 2030—an increase of 51% from 2015.
Where do these students come from and where are they going? Students in nearly every country in the world travel to pursue higher education outside their home countries. And while top destinations like the U.S. and U.K. host a majority of international students, most countries in the world have an international student population. UNESCO’s Global Flow of Tertiary-Level Students map shows just how global higher education has really become.
