Despite The Coronavirus, The UK Is Still The Most Interested Study Abroad Destination For International Students

In the first quarter of 2020, the number of international students for UK universities was significantly decreased due to the pandemic situation. But, despite this situation, the students are still showing their interest in UK universities for higher education, reported by the data on prospective student inquiries.

It is reported by the UniQuest analyzed enquiries that almost 24,000 international students were looking to join the higher education institutes in the UK from October 2018 to April 2020. However, it is calculated that the number of inquiries was dropped by 59 percent between November 2019 and March 2020. It was a 13 percent declined rate in the international students as compared to the previous enrolments by the international students. Besides this, UniQuest has calculated 67 percent more inquires in April 2020 as compared to April 2019.

It has been analyzed that India, Nigeria, Ghana, Pakistan, the US, and China are the major students' sender countries. Partnerships and insights director at UniQuest, Jennifer Parsons revealed that after enforcing lockdown the inquiries were increased by these countries. These inquiries were related to Covid-19 and online classes. The rest of the questions are included in accommodation options and visa inquiries, etc. However, when the students would be able to fly to the UK for their classes is another major question from the students’ side.
