India new #1
With a growth rate of 10.1%, India grew fastest among the three countries that account for over 50% of international students market (China and South Korea are the other two). India overtaking China’s growth rate is a significant development.
Even the biggest market (for international students) , the US, grew sharply by 8.1%. This has been the biggest growth in recent times for US also, the highest since 2005 at least. If the biggest market has posted one of its highest growth rates in recent times, that’s saying a lot about the growth momentum in the international student market.
