ICEF Podcast: Start-ups in international education: disrupters or innovators?

Listen in as ICEF’s Craig Riggs and Martijn van de Veen break down the latest developments in Canada's new cap on foreign enrolment and the latest on visa rejection rates in Australia.

This month's episode features a panel of founders for three tech-driven startups in our sector: Kasper Baars from the digital student-university matchmaker The Discov; Lydia Jones from room-booking platform Housemates; and Carla Wyburn with English Coach AI – each of whom has a fascinating behind-the-scences story to tell about their respective startup business.

We conclude with a closer look at Sweden as the latest stop for our “Keys to the Market” segment.
