The globally competitive landscape of International Education shapes the strategic approaches of institutions and different sectors in their recruitment initiatives. Trends in student mobility, exchange rates and economic factors influence study abroad decision making; challenging us to develop new tactics to achieving our respective enrolment goals. This session explores the strategies being formulated in the K-12 and post-secondary sectors to meet desired international student enrolment goals. It is an opportunity to learn about how the global landscape is impacting our respective sectors; to gain insight into how UBC, Coquitlam School District and Langara College are working in this environment and their approaches to recruitment.
