BUILD YOUR ADVANTAGE
over the Competition

There are currently 500 million students pursuing studies outside their home countries…
…Continued growth is expected but within a highly complex marketplace.

ICEF Monitor

The HEI marketplace has grown in both competition and complexity, with more institutions vying for the largely stagnant traditional segments. Markets in Asia have emerged as new battlegrounds due to growing economies and the popularity of foreign degrees there. These markets are by no means new frontiers, however, as some institutions may have already established presence, if not dominance, there.

Whilst traditional channels and agents may have delivered student numbers to your satisfaction in the past, you may see enrollment figures plateau, if not decline, due to increasing competition.

200 million youths worldwide (including those who complete secondary school) do not have the skills they need for life and for employment.

UNESCO

Employers across the world are today calling for schools and universities to place greater focus on preparing students for life in the workplace. However, only 23% of employers surveyed by the Association of American Colleges and Universities view recent graduates as well prepared in applying their knowledge and skills in real-world situations.

Similarly, the British Chambers of Commerce’s nationwide study  of 3,500 business and education leaders in the UK revealed that 41% of respondents think that universities are not doing a good job in preparing young people for employment.

Optimise
Spending

The competitiveness of UK universities has been affected by austerity.

Higher Education Policy Institute

Budgetary cuts for universities appear to have become increasingly widespread as a policy choice, with governments of  the USA, the UK, and even Denmark opting to reduce funding. This, coupled with the lower enrollment numbers, have seen brick-and-mortar universities severely hit on multiple fronts.

In response, universities and institutions are pursuing the reinvention of their offerings with new relevant courses, coupled with the upgrading of their facilities and infrastructure to enhance the student experience whilst hoping to outplay their competitors. This approach, however, requires considerable planning, financial and non-monetary resources, as well as adequate time for execution.

In the interim, universities and institutions can turn to growing markets in Asia to increase their enrollment levels. This region offers sizeable potential for growth, with some markets offering low barriers to entry and lower cost levels to those willing to get creative.
