Global demand for international education
Global Demand for International Education

  • Out of 152 million students worldwide in 2007, 2.8 million were international students, representing around 4% of the total student population worldwide

    • Demand for international higher education is set to increase from 1.8 million international students in 2000 to 7.2 million students in 2025

    • Asia will represent some 70% of total global demand, of which China and India will be the key growth drivers, representing over half of global demand and Africa will play a major role.

    • Australia’s share of global demand is set to increase from 3% to 8% with a total forecasted number of around one million students

    • Offshore programmes in Australia will account for 44% of this total demand

    • Asia will continue to dominate the global demand for Australian higher education reaching 92% in 2025

    Abroad

    • Central Asia: 5% of world’s mobile students

    • Arab States: 7% of world’s mobile students

    • East Asia and the Pacific: 29% of world’s mobile students, of which, China account for 15%

Africa
Africa

  • Yet, Sub-Saharan Africa is the region that faces the greatest challenges in the provision of higher education

  • An average annual growth rate of 8.4% compared to 4.3% for the world as a whole.

  • Currently, over 4.8 million students are enrolled in higher education institutions in Sub-Saharan Africa.

  • At the current rate of expansion, it is projected that by 2015 Africa will have twice as many tertiary students as in 2006 i.e. about 18.6 million enrolments in 2015 (World Bank, 2010).


Africa1
Africa

  • Students from the SADC region are the most mobile in the world.

  • But they tend to stay close to home.

  • In 2009, over 1.5 million SADC students were enrolled in higher education institutions, of that 89,000 studied abroad, which represents almost 6% of tertiary enrolment, compared to 2% worldwide.

  • Almost half of them (48%) went to South Africa.

  • South Africa hosted 61,000 foreign students (known as internationally mobile students), two-thirds of which came from other SADC countries.

  • 69% of internationally mobile students from other parts of sub-Saharan Africa opted to study in Europe or North America

Conclusion

  • International student mobility is changing the global higher education landscape.

    • Increasing number of students going abroad to pursue tertiary education.

  • Africa’s growth rate in terms of mobile students growing faster than elsewhere in the world.

    • A large number of African students go to South Africa for studies.

    • Visa Schemes and immigration procedures seem to play an increasingly important role in the decision process – students not only seeking employment but (temporary) residency.

    • Countries which facilitate the arrival and integration of international students through these schemes will be more competitive.

    • “Student Experience” is an important motivational factor.

    • Cost of higher education will prove to be a competitive edge.

  • Mauritius seems to satisfy most of the criteria.

  • Brand Universities need to consider establishing presence in SSA beyond the traditional franchise model.
