By attending, you’ll gain actionable insights to help you improve your institution’s global reputation, performance and internationalisation.

Our expert panel members will share insights on the following topics.

  • Changes in the higher education environment – shifts in international student flows and how the APAC higher education sector is set up to operate in an increasingly competitive international student recruitment environment. 
  • Exploring emerging trends – employability and sustainability and how institutions and the sector are responding.
  • Shifts in student demands – the profile of students, prospective student decision-making and the role of rankings and third-party accreditations in influencing where students choose to study.  
  • How to increase global reputation – the role reputation plays in student decision-making and student recruitment, and how institutions perform compared to their peers.
  • Partnership opportunities – where most research partnerships thrive, how APAC’s institutions compare against peers on international research network strength and the link between research and reputation and student recruitment trends.
