Increasing unemployment rate leading EU students to aspire for study abroad

Published On: 16 Aug 2012

 | Last Updated On: 16 Aug 2012

In a research conducted by an international education specialist web portal, it was revealed that the rate of unemployment in the European countries was directly proportional to the number of students from the region aspiring to study abroad. A 150% increase was recorded among the Spanish, Italian and Greek students who displayed enthusiasm and great interest in studying abroad.

Officials claimed that, students aspiring to study abroad ultimately want a satisfying job in the country. Universities of Western and Northern Europe reported an almost 100% growth in application rates and confirmed it to be a growing trend. At Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB), a transparent increase was recorded among the Spanish, Greek and Italian students, of which Greece accounted for 3% of the total applications received in 2011. Reportedly, UK students are more interested in higher education opportunities in Europe.

Given below are a few figures where the proportion of youth unemployment rate is compared to study abroad interest among students.

Officials also claimed that due to the extensive fee hikes in UK universities, interest among students to enroll in European colleges has shot up to 122% which is much higher than EU average recorded at 22.9%. The introduction of English medium study in Masters Degrees has also motivated the students of UK to pursue higher education in Europe.

Netherlands, Scandinavia, Belgium and Germany are popular and favorable destinations. Germany being the fourth largest hub for foreign students has 12% of the total international student traffic while Chinese students make up a large part of the international student population.
