India will be home to the largest domestic higher education market by 2025, while China will remain the number one provider of international students globally, according to a study.
The research shows that India will have the largest 18- to 22-year-old population in 10 years – 119 million. The next biggest group will be in China, despite the projection that the number of Chinese in this age group will decline by roughly 35 million to 80 million. In 2012, China’s student population was 115,560,000, overtaking India’s by 71,000.
