As global geopolitics, economic and workplace demands and individual priorities continue to evolve, the trends impacting international higher education have become more expansive, complex and diverse. Beyond the traditional student recruitment factors, there are drivers of change shifting the way we view and deliver higher education. When the British Council published Megatrends: The future of international education in 2013, we conducted a macro-analysis of our research to identify global drivers for student mobility. The study complemented our annual forecasting work, which uses demographic and economic projections to predict global student flows, to explain the more abstract factors impacting mobility. While these megatrends continue to shape global mobility, there are other influences currently transforming the higher education landscape.

This report identifies and analyses ten critical trends impacting how education is imagined, delivered and received in years to come. Although not an exhaustive list, the ten trends provide a compelling insight and understanding of how some factors, such as technology, may follow predictable patterns such as changing pedagogical practices globally and impacting teaching and learning, while other forces may be more unexpected and yet still have a potentially pervasive influence. A valuable resource for nations and organisations, this report provides knowledge and understanding of the complex forces shaping global higher education, offering context to support the education sector and its stakeholders in developing more informed internationalisation strategies, management plans, and institutional practices.
