  • Decision-making factors when choosing a study destination and an institution 
  • Incentives and support institutions provide to agents 
  • How education institutions can market themselves more efficiently 
  • Services agents provide to students and which ones they charge for 


  • The survey is built online by i-graduate with input from ICEF into the content of the survey
