Alexander Nikitch, founder of Carfax Education Group, comments on the implications of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict on international education.
“[The] company has seen an increase in Russian families who want to send their children abroad. But highlighting the divide in the middle class, Carfax also knows Russian families who no longer favour an overseas education because it is considered unpatriotic.
“There is clearly an uptick in those who, as a result of the recent economic and political developments, have decided to send their children to be educated abroad or even finally decided to emigrate themselves.

If you’re going to a new country, you can open the alumni book and ring virtually anyone in it, and they will help you. I’ve had three people from Le Rosey doing interships at Carfax and one has a full-time job here.”
