About the webinar:

The future of international student mobility continues to be uncertain in a volatile world, particularly in light of geopolitical uncertainties and the rise of populism. In North America, the United States has experienced its second year of declining numbers of new international students, while Canada continues to grow as a study destination at a rapid rate. Our presenter provides an overview of worldwide student mobility trends with a particular focus on the U.S. and Canada. We will also take a look at the economic, political, and social developments affecting student mobility.


Gain insights into:

  • Student mobility trends worldwide
  • Economic, political, and social developments impacting student mobility heading into 2019
  • The outlook for student mobility into the U.S. and Canada in 2019
