The UK and the US are set on a path to creating more barriers to attracting and retaining international students. The two largest source countries of international students – China and India – are also experiencing economic challenges which in turn are likely to decelerate the ambitions and ability of students to go abroad.
The combination of these changes in the leading source and destination countries indicates that institutions must embrace themselves for a new environment of uncertainty, hyper-competition, and turbulence.
University World News, DrEducation, and StudyPortals have partnered to convene an hour-long, free webinar on 12 April at 11 am EDT/4 pm BST. It will bring together a panel of experts to examine how they are adapting institutional strategies in a new environment. What are the strategic options institutions are considering in response to this turbulence? The discussion will highlight diverse perspectives to inform international enrollment strategies.
This webinar is fourth in the global online discussion series on international higher education convened by University World News and DrEducation. The first three webinars attracted more than 3,000 registrations from around the world. This fourth webinar is in partnership with StudyPortals.
The panel will be moderated by Rahul Choudaha, Co-founder & CEO, DrEducation and author of the recent article, “Three Waves of International Student Mobility (1999–2020)” published in Studies in Higher Education.
The expert panel includes:
- Kathleen Massey is University Registrar and Executive Director, Enrolment Services at McGill University, Canada
- Vincenzo Raimo is Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Global Engagement) at the University of Reading, UK
- Adina M. Lav is Assistant Provost for International Enrollment at the George Washington University, US
