We provide members with in-depth analysis of the UK ELT industry's source markets to help them make informed business decisions based on rigorous data. We work with BONARD as our market intelligence and insight partner.
To support our members with robust and sophisticated market intelligence, we produce an annual student statistics report looking at trends in UK ELT by student weeks, student numbers, source markets, length of stay and more. All English UK member centres submit annual student data as a requirement of membership. An executive summary of the report is available publicly and the full report is exclusive to English UK members.
After all eight major English language speaking teaching destinations have released their annual student statistics, an addendum is created to give an overview of the global ELT context. This addendum is usually published by BONARD in Q3-Q4 each year.
Quarterly Intelligence Cohort (QUIC) provides in-depth analysis of the UK ELT industry's source markets on a quarterly basis. Participation is open to English UK members only and is optional. Whilst an executive summary is available to all members (see below), the full report and Excel datasets are exclusive to QUIC participants.
This industry-leading initiative introduces features not available in the annual statistics report. It gathers much more detailed data on student weeks by 110+ source markets. The market insights are more frequent and granular with breakdowns by age, course types, booking source and booking type.
English UK and the British Council collaborate on joint research initiatives to provide support for accredited UK ELT institutions in recruiting students from key overseas markets. These reports are designed to be practical 'how to' guides to help members work in the target source market.
This report represents the industry's first effort to document the UK's online English language course offering. To provide this new intelligence, English UK commissioned BONARD to undertake a supplementary survey of its members who took part in QUIC in 2021.
The data collected provides insight on how much this type of product has been developed as a result of the pandemic (i.e. 'emergency remote teaching') and what part of the offer is 'standalone'. (Standalone online English language courses are not normally declared in student statistics requested by English UK.)
