My favorite international higher education blogs

As a newcomer to the field of international higher education, I wasn’t sure where to start to get myself up to speed on the industry. Over the last year I’ve voraciously read anything and everything I can get my hands on – from news articles from publications like The PIE News and Times Higher Education to the IIE Open Doors Reports. But by far, the most valuable resources I’ve found on the subject have been blogs. So whether you’re new to the field or searching for some new perspectives from the best international higher education blogs, I’ve put together a list of my favorites:

NACAC Admitted

Published by the National Association for College Admission Counseling (NACAC), Admitted publishes insights, data, and resources to help counselors advise students on their options for pursuing secondary education. Admitted is also a great resource for admissions and recruitment offices as it gives awareness of key topics and talking points for potential students.

IIE Opening Minds

With more of a global perspective, the Institute of International Education’s (IIE) blog, Opening Minds discusses how the field of global higher education is changing and explores topics such as educational exchange, global student mobility, institutional partnerships and international development.

Higher Education Marketing Blog

If you’re looking for tips on student recruitment, marketing strategies or social media guides, this is a great comprehensive resource. The Higher Education Marketing blogs are well-written and feature great pictures and graphics – and let’s just admit it, we all love a good infographic.


The world’s largest professional association dedicated to advancing international education, NAFSA, writes a great blog, covering everything from public policy to educational exchanges, international education innovations to resources for international educators. The NAFSA blog is definitely a must-read for anyone in the industry.

International Student Blog

Helping counsel students around the world about how to choose a best-fit university is a critical piece of our outreach and collateral at UnivAssist. To do this effectively, it’s important to understand the student’s psyche and the challenges they face as international students. That’s why I love The International Student Blog. It’s provides insight into students: what they’re thinking about, what challenges they face, and what’s most important to them.

So there you have it – some of the best international higher education blogs that I go to for news, insights, and research. What blogs do you read?

As Communications Coordinator, Tracy Beavers works in marketing, communications, graphic design and social media for UnivAssist. She brings more than five years of experience from a variety of fields including equine and medical non-profit.
