In the sections below are links to organizations that collect and report student mobility and education data at the global, regional, and national levels. Select resources of information related to understanding international student flows and key conferences in the field of international education are also provided. 

Project Atlas and many of the listed organizations employ a set of indicators to measure student flows and internationalization at higher education institutions. Surveys of student mobility typically contain the following types of indicators:

  • Inbound (international students): Examples include, total number of international students; place of origin; continuing and new students; fields of study; academic level; sources of funding; gender
  • Outbound (domestic students going abroad): Examples include, total number of students; destination country; continuing and new students; fields of study; academic level; sources of funding; gender
  • Institutional indicators: Examples include, total number of agreements or memoranda of understanding with international institutions; programs and courses taught in English; dual degree programs, and financial support for internationalization initiatives
