Despite attracting the highest numbers of international students, the US and the UK can expect to see their market share decrease over the next decade as provision of education in traditional origin countries increases, says new British Council research.

The shape of international education to 2025’ examines the landscape of global higher education through the next decade by forecasting, in cooperation with Oxford Economics, demand for higher education based on household wealth and tertiary-aged populations. These projections are supplemented by a study of the academic, economic, sociocultural and political factors that impact student mobility.
