[Report] Passport to Higher Education: A Global Payments Study
One of the pandemic’s greatest impacts for many schools was international student enrollment. COVID concerns, travel restrictions, and the uncertainty of what campus life would look like limited study abroad plans severely. That is changing. As institutions look to solidify enrollments for the upcoming school year, many are confirming their plans to be back on campus, even if some schools require students to be vaccinated prior to arrival.
To better understand the outlook for global education in the Fall 2021 semester, Flywire conducted an independent survey of 1,010 higher education students in five different countries — the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, China and Australia — about returning to school, studying internationally, curriculum preferences, student visas, and paying for their education. The results provide a lot of optimism.
