GLOBAL STUDENT SURVEY

Passport to Higher Education:

A Global Payments Study

As the education industry recovers from two very disrupted academic years, Flywire looked at the attitudes of students from the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, China and Australia about pursuing and paying for higher education.

Covid had a dramatic impact on education on the 2019-2020 and 2020-2021 school years.

Curriculums were forced online, on-campus activities were curtailed dramatically, travel restrictions limited international study opportunities, and many students delayed enrollments due to the uncertainties about what their education would look like amid a global pandemic. In addition, the financial disruption caused by the pandemic put even more financial pressure on students and families already concerned about the cost of higher education. Despite these numerous challenges, students are anxious to return to campus, and the demand for global education is stronger than ever. A new independent survey of 1,010 higher education students in five different countries explored student attitudes regarding the following themes:

  • Returning to school
  • Studying internationally
  • Curriculum preferences
  • Student visas
  • Paying for education
