IDP Education research

As a world leader in international education services, IDP is committed to conducting research that helps improve the experiences of our students.

Understanding shifting perceptions of our students

Our flagship annual research is the IDP Student Buyer Behaviour study.

Since 2012, this study has explored changes in perceptions and expectations of popular study destinations including Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the UK and USA. A key focus of the study examines drivers of student mobility including safety, affordability, graduate employment opportunities, student visa policies and quality of education. 

This report highlights how students’  perceptions can pivot in response to global economic, social and political factors.
