Predictions for the 2016 international education industry

Many factors help shape the landscape of international education every year. The factors can create an impact at all levels of the international higher education industry. Prominent international higher education websites and a key figure, Times Higher Education, THE PIE News and Hans de Wit made their predictions on the trends that will have an impact to the international higher education industry in 2016.

Brexit, employability rankings and gender equality movement in HE are the few key predictions made by bloggers and social media followers in the Times Higher Education post. THE PIE News sees 2016 will be about finding innovative ways to focus on providing better international student support, especially in enhancing their student experience and learning outcomes while at the university. Professor de Wit views that the few dominant developments in 2015 such as lower tuition fees or tuition-free higher education, other forms of internationalisation and global instability, terrorism and the refugee crisis will have a strong impact in the year 2016 as well.
