An In-Depth Analysis of What is Affecting Students' Decisions in 2020 & What the future Holds for 2021
This report uses data from surveying over 850 BridgeU international students across 83 countries, along with a small sample of 60+ counselors. It gives university recruitment and marketing teams a valuable insight into how COVID-19 impacted students’ decision making in 2020 and the most influential factors governing students’ decisions.
We also look forward to 2021 and combine additional survey responses from our counselors along with university shortlist data from the BridgeU platform*. We share our projections for how COVID-19 may influence international students’ application plans in 2021 and analyse how both traditional and emerging university destinations may be affected.
*On BridgeU, students shortlist universities they are considering applying to.
