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.
In the five areas in which FPP is holding its Asian fairs – Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, South Korea and Hong Kong - over a quarter of a million 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 South Korea and Hong Kong 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 five areas in which FPP is holding its Asian fairs - Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, South Korea and Hong Kong - over a quarter of a million 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.

or 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.

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.

Denpasar is the capital city of the island of Bali, and has a surrounding metropolitan area of roughly 2 million citizens. Denpasar has the fastest growth rate in the Bali province, driven by its booming tourism industry.

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.

South Korea

With over 123,000 students studying overseas, South Korea is the world’s 3rd largest exporter of students. Education is taken very seriously in South Korea, with 75% of children attending private schools, resulting in high academic performers who in 2013 ranked top in reading, mathematics and science of the PISA survey.

Seoul is the single largest source of international students of any city worldwide! It is the capital of South Korea, and with a population of around 23 million is one of the largest and most densely populated cities on earth. As the city continues to grow, it is transforming into a global economic, cultural and political hub.

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."
