Title:
Mobility Patterns of Asian Students: The Case of Tourism and Hospitality Management Students in the UK

Abstract:
This study aims to investigate the driving forces of Asian students to study tourism and hospitality in the United Kingdom (UK) at three stages, including: (1) choice of a foreign country, (2) selecting the UK as the host country, and (3) undertaking tourism and hospitality courses. We collected data using questionnaires, distributing among tourism and management students attending a major higher education provider in the UK. The findings identified subgroups of push and pull factors that explain the movement patterns of Asian students toward studying tourism and hospitality in the UK. Using a mathematical equation, this study revealed that “seeking a better life,” “the nature of the program,” and “external influences” significantly impact students’ movements.
