One of the biggest factors in revenue for Language Schools is the length of student enrollment, last year for the first time in recent history, revenue for language schools in the UK shrunk.

Over the last several years foreign student enrollments periods have steadily declined, the average foreign student studying in the UK is now enrolled for only 4.1 weeks.
Meanwhile other top destinations (Australia, Canada and the USA) all have average enrollment periods of 12-14 weeks.
