US leads in student perceptions of education quality, survey finds

Postgraduate students believe United States universities offer higher-quality education than other countries, this according to a survey conducted by the International Development Program, or IDP Education.

IDP places students who want to study internationally in programs around the world and recently conducted its sixth Student Buyer Behaviour Study among 4,200 students in Australia, Canada, New Zealand, the U.K. and the U.S. to measure student attitudes toward global education systems.

The study found that over the past year, more students have wanted to attend Canadian or Australian universities, which IDP believes is due to Canada’s welcoming policies and clear study-migration plans. Canada also ranked higher in affordability, graduate employment opportunities and safety.
