Student Insight

Tell us your thoughts on overseas study

Purpose of the survey

The British Council invites you to participate in this global survey to share your thoughts on overseas study, including where and why you would like to study abroad. Even if you are just starting to consider your overseas study options or on the verge of beginning your course, we are interested in the decisions that you've made so far. 

This survey will take about 10 to 15 minutes to complete.
