The market share of students enrolled to study in the five main English-speaking destination countries (MESDC: Australia, New Zealand, United States, United Kingdom and Canada) continues to decline due to increased competition.
A major factor in steering the global flow of international students is immigration and visa policies. Over the last four years, a number of significant changes have been made to student visa policies which have impacted international student enrolment numbers.
This presentation provides an overview of key student visa policy changes in the MESDC, and how these changes have impacted international student enrolment trends. Additionally, it briefly examines some of the events and challenges currently facing these countries such as increased global competition, the strong exchange rate and the Streamlined Visa Process (SVP) in Australia.
