Educational Tourism & Beyond: Flexible Housing for Mobile Talent
Spain and Portugal are attractive destinations for international student mobility, drawing an estimated combined annual influx of 159,700 international students with a steady growth each year. Both countries offer a high-quality student lifestyle during their study period especially with regards to perceived value-for-money; however, these mobile talents have limited options for flexible housing models. The Erasmus+ programme and growth in university attendance numbers suggest greater opportunities for student housing and blended models that can house short-stay mobile talent.
At our Spain and Portugal Session, we will address following questions:
What are the changing preferences of today and tomorrow’s mobile generations in Iberia?
How can public-private cooperation support new developments to house international mobile talent?
Why are Spain and Portugal ideal markets for flexible housing models?
