Sunrise / Sunshine / Sunset Markets

The good news in international student recruitment is that the whole world is our market: We need to enroll only a tiny fraction of the hundreds of thousands of students around the world who would love to study in the States. The bad news in this business is that the whole world is our market: A truly global market is overwhelming. How do we figure out how to make the most of our limited resources?

University World News offers some insight, from a geographic perspective:

Sunrise Markets are countries of origin for globally mobile students, that may not yet be visible on the horizon but will be a source of international students in the next five to ten years:

  • Brazil
  • Chile
  • Colombia
  • Czech Republic
  • Georgia
  • Indonesia
  • Pakistan
  • Romania
  • Russia
  • Vietnam

Sunshine Markets have been sending a fair share of students abroad for some time, and show potential for even further growth.

  • China
  • India
  • Saudi Arabia

Sunset Markets are more traditional countries of origin, whose volumes are remaining stable or expected to decline:

  • Hong Kong
  • Japan
  • Korea
  • Malaysia
  • Singapore
