Global Flow of Tertiary-Level Students
UIS' data on the mobility of students sheds a light on the shifting demand for higher education, particularly in the developing world
Where do students go to study? Where do they come from? The UNESCO Institute for Statistics (UIS) has developed a new digital interactive map that shows the in and outcome of students in one particular country compared with other ones. It allows, in a very visual and interactive way, to contrast data down to the very numbers.
According to the latest UIS data, at least 3.6 million students in 2010 were enrolled in tertiary education abroad, up from 2 million in 2000. East Asia and the Pacific are the largest sources of international students and the regions that host the largest number of international students are North America and Western Europe.
