Features for edition 18

Topic: Science of student marketing
Convincing a student that your institution is the right match for their hopes and aspirations has become a careful process, and there are many marketing agencies, consultancies and strategists out there who believe they can offer deeper insight into types of student, how to ‘speak’ to them and how to better understand your own brand proposition. We find out about the latest science behind the scenes in the student marketing business.

Focus: Internships
Internships that enable students to gain professional experience are rapidly rising in popularity according to the organisations that facilitate them; students can spend time with an employer either as part of a degree program or as a stand-alone addition to their CV. The PIE Review talks to global internship providers about how the sector is evolving.

Business Barometer: USA
The last few years have been difficult trading conditions for ELT programs and a patchy performance for colleges, universities & business schools; some are seeing gains in international enrolments while others are experiencing the reverse. It’s safe to say all educators are rethinking how to ensure they have an offer that international students will consider. We summarise how the US market is faring and repositioning in an era of heightened competition.

Insights: Success stories in intled
We all know that former politicians may well be internationally-educated, but international alumni can end up excelling in a multitude of industries. We highlight case studies of superb alumni stories and consider how alumni relations teams at university-level can help leverage the life stories they have been involved with.

Central Feature: Post-study work market
The lure of the chance to stay in a foreign country and work upon graduation is significant in some student source markets, but the gap between expectation and reality in terms of accessing jobs and not being exploited in the workplace can be a challenge. We look at policies from the top down in various education destinations, considering the take-up of post-study work and how organisations or institutions are working to help students enter the job market.

Trend: ELT within Asia
Various countries within Asia such as the Philippines, Singapore and even South Korea are attracting students from neighbouring countries who believe they can access superior ELT training there. Beyond language acquisition, English as a medium of instruction (EMI) degree courses in Asia are also growing. Find out more in our Trend piece.
