‘Cost of Studying,’ ‘Post-Graduation Work Opportunities,’ and ‘Cost of Living’ Are Top Factors to International Students, according to ApplyBoard’s Trends Report
The trends report, titled “A New Era of Student Choice Begins,” dives into the top trends in international education for 2023 and beyond.
Kitchener, Ontario, Canada, Nov. 14, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The second annual trends report published by ApplyBoard, the technology platform democratizing access to education, shares insights on which countries international students are attracted to, top concerns for international students when choosing where to study, and key trends shaping the international education sector.
Enabling student success is ApplyBoard’s number one priority. The report can help higher education institutions and countries identify ways they can better meet student needs. Meti Basiri, a Co-Founder of ApplyBoard and former international student himself, believes it will be critical for countries to improve and innovate to compete for international talent over the next couple of years.
"The countries and institutions that succeed in bringing in top talent will be those that prioritize student success,” says Meti Basiri, Co-Founder, ApplyBoard.
The report leverages ApplyBoard’s exclusive data, industry reports, and government data to shed light on the important factors that will enable student success. The ApplyBoard Pulse Survey asked counsellors what aspects of studying abroad students were most concerned about when choosing where to study. Affordability took the top spot. Cost of studying (85%) was considered the top concern followed by post-graduation work opportunities (80%) and cost of living (73%).
"The trends report provides transparency about which aspects of studying internationally are the most important,” continues Basiri. "It serves as a helpful reminder that international students have a tremendous number of options in front of them. Students’ wants and needs are constantly shifting. Countries and governments need to listen in order to keep up.”
With job vacancies reaching historic highs around the world, connecting with international talent continues to be a top priority for popular study abroad destinations. Attracting the best and brightest international students will lead to more innovation around the world.
The report also looks at the relationship between what fields of study students are searching for and how they connect to vacancies sectors are experiencing. For example, searches for fields of study related to the health industry on the ApplyBoard Platform jumped 3.8 percentage points in 2022 compared to 2020. Searches for science programs rose by 3.7 percentage points over the same period. This increased interest in health and sciences indicates that future international students are listening to the needs of the sector and may be poised to fill certain labour gaps.

Havila Kystruten AS: Regnskap for tredje kvartal 20231.12.2023 18:34:33 CET | Pressemelding
September var første måned med full drift av alle fire skip. Til tross for forsinkelse av Havila Polaris og Havila Pollux i Q3, ble gjennomsnittlig belegg 70 % og gjennomsnittlig lugarrate kr 4 466. Inntektene er naturligvis preget av forsinkelsene og lavere enn forventet, men selskapet ser en positiv inntektsutvikling fra 2. kvartal og videre ut året. I forbindelse med refinansiering er driftskostnadene påvirket av ekstraordinære kostnader knyttet til juridiske og finansielle rådgivere. Regnskap og balanse påvirkes av valutasvingningene, og selskapet sikrer sine valutaforpliktelser med salg i valuta. Selskapet legger til grunn en normalisert drift av fire skip fremover, uten ekstraordinære kostnader. Selskapet har ambisjoner om et gjennomsnittlig belegg på 80 % for 2024, hvorav 45 % av all kapasitet allerede er solgt. Interessen for Havila Kystruten øker stadig i både inn- og utland, og positive tilbakemeldinger om produkt og konsept mottas på daglig basis. Resultat for 3. kvartal 202
Havila Kystruten : Third quarter 2023 accounts1.12.2023 18:34:33 CET | Press release
September marked the first month of full operation for all four ships. Despite the delays with Havila Polaris and Havila Pollux in Q3, the average occupancy rate reached 70%, with an average cabin rate of NOK 4,466. Revenues are naturally affected by the delays and lower than expected, but the company sees a positive revenue trend from the 2nd quarter and onward throughout the year. In connection with refinancing, operating costs were affected by extraordinary expenses related to legal and financial advisors. Currency fluctuations have had an impact on the financial statements and balance sheet, and the company is hedging its currency commitments through currency sales. The company assumes normalized operation of four ships going forward, without extraordinary costs. The company aims for an average occupancy rate of 80% for 2024, with 45% of all capacity already sold. Interest in Havila Kystruten is continually growing both domestically and internationally, with positive feedback on th
