WHAT WE DO

Explore international development opportunities

ISC Research has supported independent schools with their international development plans for over a decade and has been the leading provider of market data since 1994.

OUR DATA

Data you can trust

Most data and intelligence supplied by ISC Research is collected directly from senior leaders at international schools. This data and intelligence gathering is conducted year-round by our field-based research consultants supported by our desk researchers. We also use trusted local sources, market experts and government bodies to acquire reliable market intelligence.

We also collect data on independent schools that have one or more foreign campuses or an international presence.
