Student recruitment in Central America
International student recruitment has been re-shaped since 2020. The global pandemic has also changed the environment for Central American students who are looking to apply to international universities.
* Students are embracing online technology for their study choice and they apply to multiple universities. This means while application numbers are increasing, conversion rates will decrease as a result.
* The role of study agents has gained importance in Central America. Agents have access to many universities and their students.
* Most currencies across Latin America have seen a decrease in value against the dollar between since May 2020 making it more expensive for students to go and study abroad.
* Financial support is needed for students and those universities that have competitive scholarships and flexible payment terms will have a greater chance of succeeding in their recruitment efforts.
* Despite these socioeconomic developments the number of outbound students from the region is still very substantial. According to UNESCO close to 50,000 Central American students are studying abroad.
