ANNEXED NOTE

1. Technical Notes and Definitions

The table refers to students enrolled in tertiary education (ISCED: levels 5, 6 and beyond)

Education statistics are compiled by UNESCO on the basis of national administrative sources, reported by Ministries of Education or National Statistical Offices of receiving countries.

The number of students enrolled refers to the count of students studying in the reference period.
Students are classified as international students if they left their country of origin and moved to another country for the purpose of study. Figures of mobile students are therefore different from figures of foreign students, who may be studying in the country they were residing prior to enrolling in higher education.

Germany: Data for the years 2008 and beyond are UIS estimates.
Absence of any data for a given country most often reflects “nil or negligible values” pertaining to the mobile students’ nationality.

2. Institution which provides data

Unesco Institute of Statistics (UIS), UNESCO.

3. Data availability

The data was extracted from UIS database UIS.Stat
http://data.uis.unesco.org/
“Education”
“International student mobility in tertiary education”
Topic:”Inbound students”
Sub-topic: “Inbound internationally mobile students by country of origin”

Similar data are also available from OECD and Eurostats databases, for immigration countries relevant to both institutions (OECD countries, EU-28 countries).

Last date of access: March 2015
