Features for edition 23

Topic:– Exam testing, latest trends.
We look at the evolving world of exam testing, with an increasing number of online and offline models being used by institutions for admissions testing, such as Gaokao being considered now by some US universities, and new entrants challenging traditional players in the high-stakes world of language proficiency. The behemoths of the industry are also innovating to stay ahead

Business Barometer: China
One of the fastest-growing study destinations of the last decade, China has been prescient in wooing international students from countries which might find cost or visa issuance for traditional countries off-putting. A combination of scholarship offers, English medium education, innovative universities and the allure of one of the most dynamic growing economies in Asia has meant that educators have a great story to share.

Latest trends in PPPs
The traditional public-private partnership model has evolved of late, with a far more nuanced and multidimensional relationship being advocated: private education companies are working with universities to deliver direct entry enrolments as well as pathway students, to manage campuses overseas and to work together to capture an online student. We speak to some of the operators in this field to find out how the relationship has moved on.

Central Feature: Digital tech in international ed.
Ed tech is seen as the next big thing by investors who are keen to be part of the growth story of education technology and its impact on global education, how students research online, learn online, engage online, feel supported online and organise ancillary services (such as accommodation, activities, part-time work). We cover some of the many new entrants into the international ed sector that are trying to use technology to solve a perceived problem for international students. Many such companies have been set up by former international students themselves.

Trend: Part-time work landscape in Canada
With part-time work rights widely available to students at public higher education institutions in Canada, the employment landscape has exploded with an influx of eager students, especially those from parts of Asia, who are relying on securing a job to top up their living allowance. This has had differing impact on both small towns and large cities, as we discover. We find out how institutions are helping students with their extra-curricular career.

Regional consortia in Australia – evolving student support
With international education being one of Australia’s premier service exports, it stands to reason that the government supports strong frameworks for integration for its international students. Much of the innovation and localized support has been achieved via dynamic regional consortia, such as Study Queensland, Study Melbourne, Study NSW etc. We explore the various initiatives undertaken by these operators, with drop-in study hubs and schemes to take students out of the big cities among the ideas achieving impact.

PIEoneer Shortlist
Every year, hundreds of innovators around the world submit an entry to win one of our 14 coveted awards, honouring impressive achievements in areas such as student support, teaching delivery, marketing, public-private partnership and championing diversity. We profile the lucky shortlisters.
