The Students’ Perspective: Valuable Insights for University Leaders - Global Edition

Understanding the evolving needs, preferences, and expectations of students in higher education is paramount to helping ensure their retention, completion, and long-term success. This is against a backdrop of learners having more options and opportunities today to gain skills than ever before, as well as the value of higher education being questioned to a greater degree in parts of the world in recent years.

Anthology conducted a global survey of more than 5,000 higher education leaders and current students in 11 countries to provide context and perspective from students and leaders about the opportunities, challenges, preferences, and technology impact across a number of areas.

Through this research, Anthology aims to contribute to the enhancement of the higher education experience for students and universities as they work together to refine, and in some cases redefine, how teaching and learning take place. This includes providing actionable recommendations to improve services, support systems, and learning environments.

This report focuses on the results of the global survey to identify relevant opportunities to enhance the student experience and further support students’ success.
