Student Insight

These country-specific reports explore the influences and motivating factors affecting student decision-making regarding study abroad. Based on data collected since February 2007, Education Intelligence’s ongoing decision-making survey collects the views of an expanding population of students – currently over 170,000 from more than 200 countries and territories– and serves as the basis for these reports. The Student Insight series provides powerful access to understanding what is involved when students make decisions about study abroad.
