The International Student Barometer

The global benchmark for the international student experience. Implemented by the world's best universities.  

The ISB tracks and compares the decision-making, expectations, perceptions and intentions of your international students from application to graduation. It enables you to make informed decisions to enhance the international student experience and drive successful recruitment and marketing strategies.

With feedback from over 3 million students worldwide across all student types, levels and years of study, the ISB is the leading benchmarking tool used to track the international student experience.
