AU – Under-supplied PBSA as Domestic Students Grow

UK – Ability to Attract Growing Domestic Demand
The UK maintains as one of the top tertiary education markets in the world. However, with the pandemic throttling travel and face-to-face teaching, demand from international students is relatively uncertain compared to domestic demand.
