International studies are increasingly popular and sought after. Indeed, all recognize the contribution of quality studies in the success of future graduates, and seek access to the best universities in the world.
In order to prepare for the best universities, it appears that many parents enroll their children in international schools beforehand, and this trend is likely to intensify in the years to come.
The ISC research center has published data showing that nearly 3.4 million students attended nearly 7,000 international schools in 2012. These figures have reached 5 million students for nearly 9,500 schools in 2018, and that we should reach 7 million in 12,600 schools by 2023.
Research shows that more than 90% of students attending international schools are able to join renowned universities in different countries of the world, which justifies this growing interest in international schools.
