Recruit smarter

Student recruitment is changing. Are you ready? With granular insights from more than 115,000 prospective students – the largest of its kind – the QS International Student Survey (ISS) has been guiding recruitment strategies for over a decade.   

We’ve created a series of ISS reports which summarise the 2023 key findings and recommendations by region and key recruitment markets. So, you can:

  • Understand and respond to the evolving international student priorities in the areas that matter most to them.
  • Spot and leverage growth opportunities.
  • Refine your brand positioning and showcase your differentiators by target market.

There are two types of reports which may interest you. See below for more details and how to download.
