A shrinking share

The UK will lose its market share of international students over the coming decade, as its competitors expand at a faster rate.

China will continue to send the largest number of international students worldwide, followed by India, Nigeria, Germany and Saudi Arabia. The US, the UK, Australia, Germany and Canada are expected to continue to enrol the largest overall numbers of international students. However the UK is predicted to lose market share, according to a British Council report.

The report notes that India and China have sufficient wealth and youth population to continue to send high numbers of students abroad, but countries such as Brazil and Indonesia are likely to meet demand locally. It also notes that beyond 2025, China and India may also begin to meet their own demand.
