• India is the only country that appears poised to come anywhere close to China as a top country of origin for qualified students, and is the number two sender to several top and emerging education destinations, including the U.S., Canada, and Australia.
  • Many countries have seen Indian enrollments grow at a fast clip, even as numbers from other top sending countries such as South Korea, China, and Saudi Arabia have either decelerated or dropped.
  • India’s demographics and economic growth trajectory mean that it will likely remain a top sender for many years to come.
  • Indian student mobility has historically been tied to work potential, and to perceptions of safety, factors which are in flux to varying degrees in key destination countries such as the U.S., Canada, and Great Britain, thanks to changes in political leadership, shifting immigration policies, and more.
