UK ELT saw post-pandemic summer of recovery

Recently released English UK Quarterly Intelligence Cohort data shows there was an increase in both under-18 and adult student weeks of over 200% during summer 2022 compared with 2021. However, the UK is not seeing pre-pandemic figures yet, as the data showed that student weeks were just 55% of what they were in 2019.

Across the globe, the latest data shows that recovery is patchy, with some markets exceeding or close to pre-pandemic figures and others doing much worse. In the third quarter of 2022, most other key European markets reached over 50% of their 2019 business, while Brazil reached 103% of its pre-pandemic levels and Germany 104%. The biggest challenge for UK ELT was the missing volume from China and Russia.

“We’re really pleased for our members,” says Annie Wright, joint acting chief executive for English UK. “The Q3 data shows a real sense of recovery and is testament to their resilience and hard work. We will continue to support recovery with our lobbying work for a youth group travel scheme and our other campaigning work to help where our industry needs it most.”
