Number and Trend from the Top Three Countries 
 

 
We might descript the Asian student market using the following three words: Enthusiasm, Mass, and Resources. There is a great deal of enthusiasm in competing for the prestige of an overseas education. There are approximately 123 million people in only the twelve cities in China we plan to broadcast to during our 2011 Recruitment Roadshow China, indicating the mass of the Chinese market. Finally, there is a burgeoning middle class in those countries with the resources to support their children in their studies in Canada.
