ICEF Podcast: The increasing appeal of Asian destinations in international student recruitment

In this episode, ICEF’s Craig Riggs and Martijn van de Veen discuss the latest developments in our sector, including a worsening student housing crunch in the UK and key insights from some recent, large-scale student surveys.

The episode features a discussion on the growing appeal of study destinations within Asia. Institutions across the vast continent are consistently moving up global rankings, alongside which we can place other important factors for students and families, including safety, affordability, geography, politics, and culture. We welcome in two special guests to explore this topic: Sarah Todd, vice president with Griffith University and Gary Bowerman, the managing director of Asia Travel Re:Set.

We conclude the episode with a closer look at Mexico in the latest stop in our “Keys to the Market” segment.
