New Zealand's
Return on Investment

dollar invested, in work placement collaboration with
other countries, according to a recent report commissioned by Universities New Zealand.
The report assessed the economic impact of four types of investment in
international education collaborations: international research collaboration,
academic staff exchanges, student exchanges, and work placements. The
report also examines the distribution of the economic benefits of the investments among universities, participating individuals, and the larger economy.
It found the majority of benefits accrue to the public and to the general
economy in three of the four investment categories.

At schools like the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand,

Modest English

Growth in 2017
THERE HAVE BEEN ONLY SLIGHT

gains in global English language proficiency over
the past year, according to the 7th annual EF
English Proficiency Index, which measures adult
English proficiency around the world. By ranking
80 countries and territories based on the results
of more than 1 million takers of the EF Standard
English Test, the index also analyzes 20 English
learning initiatives from around the world.
Despite overall sluggish growth, no country
assessed in the index experienced significant
decline. Panama, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, and
Thailand showed the most progress.
The report emphasizes several developments
and trends in the regional proficiency analyses:
n■ Europe continues to dominate in global English
proficiency; eight of the top 10 countries in the
proficiency ranking are European.
n■ Asia ranks as the second strongest region, but
Latin America is catching up, coming in only two
points behind Asia. Argentina has Latin America's
highest English proficiency rating, while El
Salvador has the lowest.
n■ For the first time, there has been enough data
to analyze Africa as a distinct region. However,
the report notes that with data from only nine
African countries, it's difficult to produce an accurate assessment of proficiency in the region.

A RECENT SURVEY FROM HBSC canvassed more than

8,400 parents in 15 countries and found that an increasing
number of parents are open to long-term education abroad for
their children. In 2017, 42 percent of respondents said they would
consider university abroad for their children, a 20 percent jump
from 2016 numbers.
Almost half of parents-47 percent-prefer the United States
for their children's education abroad, with Australia and the

United Kingdom as the second and third most desirable destinations, respectively. These countries' popularity is no coincidence;
all three have implemented long-term internationalization and
recruitment strategies, policy changes, and other formalized initiatives that are designed to attract international students.
