Expanding economies, a young population and favorable government initiatives continue to fuel the larger of Asia’s study abroad markets. While China and South Korea constitute two of the world’s three largest sources of international students, recruiters are seeing the benefit in diversifying their student population through the emerging Asian markets of Indonesia, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam.
In the four countries in which FPP is holding its Asian fairs – Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Cambodia - over 250,000 students head abroad each year to continue their higher education.
While Vietnam, Indonesia and Thailand have been regular and popular destinations on FPP’s Asia fairs, customer-demand has led to FPP adding events in Cambodia for the first time this semester. The result is a combination of some of the region’s most exciting emerging markets for international student recruitment, as well as some of its most established destinations.

Why Recruit in Asia?

In the four countries in which FPP is holding its Asian fairs - Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, and Cambodia - over 250,000 students head abroad each year to continue their higher education.

Expanding economies, a young population and favorable government initiatives continue to fuel the larger of Asia’s study abroad markets. While China and South Korea constitute two of the world’s three largest sources of international students, recruiters are seeing the benefit in diversifying their student population through the emerging Asian markets of Indonesia, Thailand and Vietnam.

The recently formed ASEAN Economic Community, which includes Thailand, Indonesia and Vietnam amongst others, has chosen English as it’s language for business. Although this arrangement is to encourage economic stability between the included nations, the increased language proficiency will also benefit foreign education providers.

Why are Asian students going abroad?

The drivers for students from each of these countries to study abroad vary greatly. Research conducted by FPP and Intead has shown that Indonesian students study abroad in order to benefit from a better education than they can hope to receive at home.

For Vietnamese students, studying abroad is simply an achievement in itself that they want to attain. Whereas Thai students are more interested in the experience of studying abroad as a whole and the social rewards that brings. While for Chinese students, the prestige associated by studying overseas at a top-ranked institution is of paramount importance both to student and family.

Thailand

Thailand is an emerging economy, and the 2nd largest economy in South East Asia after Indonesia. It's considered a newly industrialized country, and ranks as the 4th richest nation in the region after Singapore, Malaysia and Brunei. The Thai international student market is well-established, sending tens of thousands of students abroad each year for over three decades. Student numbers for undergrad, postgrad and particularly language programs are consistently strong for several destination countries, especially the US, the UK, Australia, Japan, Malaysia and France.

Bangkok is the educational, political, economic and cultural centre of Thailand, with a population of 7 million. It embraces the modern world with high-rise office towers and world class hotels, but still retains its cultural heritage.

Indonesia

Indonesia is home to the world’s second fastest growing economy, and is the world’s fourth most populous nation – 50% of which is under the age of 30. Increased government spending in education has led to the number of students in secondary education doubling in recent times, and further increases to the education budget is set to help this trend continue. Almost 40,000 Indonesian students study abroad each year.

Jakarta is the capital city of Indonesia, a nation made up of over 17,000 islands. Located on the West side of the Island of Java, the city acts as a gateway to the rest of Indonesia. Jakarta has developed into one of Asia’s most prominent metropolitan areas and has rapidly grown to hold a population of approximately 9 million.

Vietnam

Over 50,000 Vietnamese students study abroad at tertiary level. Vietnam is recognised as an important emerging market for international education, with the number of students going abroad increasing steadily, partly due to concerns over the quality of domestic education, which is struggling to keep up with increasing demand.

Ho Chi Minh City is Vietnam’s largest city and also the country’s economic centre, with a population of almost 7 million. The city is often referred to as the ‘Paris of Asia’.

Hanoi is the capital city of Vietnam, and has transformed over the decades into an industrial and agricultural centre. It is also a communications centre, with strong links to China and other Vietnamese cities by rail and road.

Cambodia

A country which has seen the number of students heading overseas increase by 20% since 2015. Cambodia has been home to strong economic growth for more than 2 decades, ranking 6th in the world from 1994 to 2015. Whilst many students decide to study in other countries throughout Asia and Australasia, France and the United States are also popular destinations.

Phnom Penh is the capital and most populous city of Cambodia, growing to become the nation's economic, industrial and cultural center. Double-digit economic growth rates in recent years have triggered an economic boom in Phnom Penh, with new high rises springing up around the city, and global and domestic tourism levels at an all-time high.

What our clients say

Watch what our clients say
"FPP is not only the best education fair organizer, but is also an important strategic partner for us. They clearly prioritise customer satisfaction and since we first met them 12 years ago, they have constantly outdone themselves in organizing and managing education fairs.
Since 2014 we have been hiring FPP to organize our own event - AC EXPO - the largest education fair in Brazil for students willing to go to Australian and New Zealand. It has been a real pleasure to work with them and the results have been incontestable. I have no doubt that education providers may accomplish very good ROI after an FPP fair."

"We have been working with FPP for 8 years. It has been really good working with them, the organisation and quality of students is very good. We recommend FPP and EDUEXPOS."
