Which country attracts the most international students?

According to the Emerging Futures research by IDP, an Australia-based leader in global education services, the most popular countries for international study are Canada, the USA and, sharing third place, the UK and Australia.

The reasons for these rankings are as follows: Canada is number one (with 26% of respondents giving it as their first choice) due to its post-study work policies and welfare. While the USA (which attracted 20% of respondents) and the UK (with 19% of respondents) were both perceived as offering the best education, the UK isn’t perceived as offering employment opportunities to its international graduates, particularly among Indian students.

“The results of this comprehensive research are clear,” says Simon Emmett, CEO of IDP Connect. “For competing destinations to remain competitive they must deliver a positive experience and positive outcomes for students, whilst improving the ways in which they communicate this with future students.”
