For essentially the most half, scholarships look to remain the identical with reference to availability in 2022 as they did in 2021 – taking part in an “essential function in engagement of scholars”.

“The large problem for the sector is how one can create the correct mix of direct and digital campaigns”

Studymove recommends, because the Australian sector continues via 2022, that “fastidiously following the variety of scholar visa numbers for every market” is the way in which to successfully predict the subsequent steps.

“It has been two lengthy years the place lots has modified on the earth and establishments have to intently monitor what has modified, during which markets there may be demand and the way candidates are altering or not altering their preferences,” Ramirez added.

To know what comes subsequent, he informed The PIE, is “important” to proceed with profitable scholar recruitment methods within the coming years.
