    local quality of postgraduate and schools
    provision perceived to be poor government
    scholarships esp. PhD scholarships
  • Strong switching from the US still continues as a
    result of security and visa related issues, but
    honeymoon wont last forever!
  • The UK is now market leader, with Australia
    experiencing a significant drop as a result of
    agent switching, unfavourable exchange rates and
    low quality perceptions
  • New Zealand numbers now falling mainly due to
    adverse perceptions and limited offer
  • France, Germany and Holland undertaking
    collective promotion events under the banner of

Comparison of market share
  • The USA gained a 36.4 market share in 2001,
    since when its market share has continuously
    declined. At the end of 2005, the USA gained only
    24.2 , due to its visa regulations policy.
  • Australia also gained a larger market share
    during 2001-2005 however, the number of student
    visas issued each year has fluctuated. At the end
    of 2005, they had a 28.5 market share, which
    has constantly declined since 2001.
  • The UK had only a 22.8 market share in 2000 but
    since then the number of student visas has
    constantly increased. It became the market leader
    in 2004 and remained so in 2005.
