As demand for university education increases, the past successes of the region have created a solid foundation upon with to build. How did the region find itself in this position? Where are the greatest opportunities to grow? What influences are impacting the decision-making of leaders in the region? How can universities, both within and outside of the region, prepare for the future?

Almost half a million international students have chosen the region as their study destination, a number that has remained stable despite the challenges of the pandemic. Many students are also coming from source countries different from those in other established study destinations, while the region continues to export its education models. What can be learnt from the region’s success? Why are students attracted to it as a study destination and how can this be sustained? How can different models of study be exported elsewhere?

Online and alternative modes of study have been very popular within the region, but new challenges mean this may change. As providers look towards offering online education and increasing access to underrepresented students, the region has the opportunity to develop its own methods of teaching learning. What are the challenges to offering online and virtual education? What considerations need to be made in developing opportunities for teaching and learning? Are there lessons that can be translated into new areas?
