—————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————–Asia/Middle East Student Destinations (ASID) Report 2013
New insights to help make your course portfolio appeal to students from Asia and the Middle East
Our ASID report includes analysis of the most up to date student enrolment data from the 5 main ‘western’ study destinations attracting students from Asia and the Middle East – The UK, US, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.
In addition we are surveying prospective international students from Asia and the Middle East who are considering study options in the above countries to further investigate their motivations and decision making behind their subject and course choices.
Interim findings from the survey to date suggest that degree title is considered to be important to the students and of perceived importance to employers. Where possible, ASID analysis will be at program level as well as broader subject level to provide the most detailed insights as to the key titles/themes attracting students from these regions of the world.
This research is being featured at British Council Going Global 2013 Conference in Dubai, UAE in March.

Education Marketing Books
Published initially in 1999 and reproduced in 2003 The School Marketing Manual is the most comprehensive book yet published on marketing schools, universities and colleges. Its grounding is based on the award winning PhD thesis by Stephen Holmes on education marketing.
For many years, it has been the set text for Australia’s Masters level education courses that include marketing education subjects (The University of Melbourne, University of Queensland and University of Southern Queensland). Its appeal as a step by step practical workbook to develop a comprehensive approach to marketing across schools has seen sales of over 7000 copies across Australia, NZ, UK and Canada. Dr Stephen Holmes is currently writing a second book on education marketing due for release in 2012.
