Global Results

Each year, Keystone conducts a global survey that explores what international students are thinking and feeling about studying abroad.

We surveyed over 23,000 prospective students representing 190+ countries who are considering studying abroad in 2023 and beyond.

The results have been captured in a 30+ page report, and we explored the findings with a panel of higher education experts during a live webinar, which you can watch on demand here.

Furthermore, we have analyzed the data in detail and developed a series of interactive data dashboards, based on key themes of the survey, allowing you to discover the data in greater detail below.
