Features for edition 24

Topic: Direct-to-student accommodation channels.
We analyse how new platforms are emerging which are engaging directly with prospective international students on the important issue of where they will live when they study abroad.

Business Barometer: Germany
Germany is an interesting country to cover, as its government is committed to a holistic international strategy, delivered via DAAD, which will see strong German outbound links and strong inbound international enrolments. With German universities also offering very low fees and amazing stats showing long-term migration is a fairly likely outcome, we analyse the latest state of play in the heart of Europe.

Insights: Medical and dentistry training.
Becoming a doctor or dentist is a very popular ambition because it is a rewarding and well paid career. And a rise in the number of dedicated medical schools that offer a Western curriculum and training that gives graduating students a passport to practice in regions such as North America and Europe is occurring as a result. This includes locations such as Grenada and Georgia, as we report.

Central Feature: Student services – best practices
There is a lot of focus on how to reach, attract, convert the international student audience, but beyond that, the professional servicing of student needs once they are overseas is becoming a better researched area. There are award-winning institutions who have proven a significant improvement in outcomes for their students whether that be for mental health achievements, post-study support, laser-like focus on employability or caring mentoring networks. We profile some of the inititatives that have caught our attention and talk to experts in this space.

Focus: Top 10 biggest private companies in international ed.
Which are the top 10 biggest education companies focused on delivering quality teaching outcomes on a wholly international student cohort? We take a look at the landscape and an educated guess as to who should be at the top of the leader board.

Trend: PIEoneer Award winners
A look at the successful winners from the 16 categories in this year’s PIEoneer Awards.

Embassies and their impact
Education officers at Embassies around the world can play a critical and sometimes ignored role in the life of international students. Many of them liaise regularly with universities and intervene during tricky visa policy issues too. We speak to various embassy representatives for their view on what international students in their network typically struggle with and how embassies can be a lifeline for both the students and sometimes the educators.
