New Market in International Education

In 2013, as the world’s fourth most populated country with 240 million people and a desire to up-skill, Indonesia may fast become the next big market for international education institutions, according to The PIE News.

In 2013, as the world’s fourth most populated country with 240 million people and a desire to up-skill, Indonesia may fast become the next big market for international education institutions, according to The PIE News.  Citing estimates from The British Council, the article shows the disparity between the number of students entering higher education in the next decade (2.6 million) and the country’s ability to cater to those students.
 

Currently there are 36,000 Indonesians studying overseas - roughly 1% of the Indonesian student population. The most popular destination, Australia, had 17,000 Indonesians enroll in institutions last year, according to Austrade. The number represents around 3% of Australia’s student intake.
 

This potential growth in the market should come as welcome news to Australian institutions. How this will play out, however, is still too early to tell.
