Education is one of the most important factors contributing to the improvement of humankind. The education sector is also one of the most heavily impacted sectors by the pandemic. COVID-19 has caused a major stir in the education sector. However, the educational needs of the world have not been hindered and the number of students has only increased since the outbreak of the pandemic. This paper aims at identifying international student’s behaviours towards higher education outside of their country during the time of the pandemic. Consequently, understanding the factors that affect the decision-making process of studying abroad. This study also studies why the currently enrolled students chose the National College of Ireland over other schools to pursue education during the time of the pandemic.
