Why is the international school market so important for education providers and suppliers?

The English-medium, K-12 international schools market is an extremely healthy market and growing. It is highly competitive too.

International schools demand high quality resources and services to ensure they deliver high standards and remain a school of choice.

What our customers say about ISC Online
We are really enjoying using the ISC Online portal - I use it daily! It has proved a shrewd investment thus far, not only for driving new sales but also for quickly checking information on schools such as number of students, fees etc which we use for pricing. It's also handy to see future schools on there as well.

Hugh Webster

JCS Online Resources
ISC Online is essential for our business and always will be. We simply couldn't map the market and keep up with the changes which happen so rapidly within this sector without it.

Kris Hair

ISC Online helps us make new contacts and the value of ISC studies is really apparent. Having access to that plays a big part in our future dealings with schools.

This is a must have tool for any education supplier wishing to excel in the international schools market. Stay up to date and ahead of the game with real-time data and analysis.

Higher Education

Over 80% of all students attending English-medium international schools today are local children. Their families are investing in their education from the earliest age to prepare them well in order to gain an undergraduate degree at a western university. The other 20% are expatriates with a high expectation of achieving a degree.

International officers can stay ahead of their competitors, maximise their admission strategy, identify the schools with the right calibre of students, and connect directly with the schools' College Counsellors through this real-time data portal.
