The international educational map of the last 4 centuries looks like this. There are two main educational centers — North American and European. The USA, where more than 750 thousand students study, together with neighboring Canada hold a third of the global student foreign contingent. The total educational turnover of Europe, both in terms of the number of students and money, is quite comparable to America. The third is in Australia.
Three flows of educational migration are directed to the centers. The main flow is "East-West", its main channel runs from Southeast Asia in the North American direction. A slightly smaller flow is to Europe. Another transcontinental flow is "South-North", from Southwest Asia and North Africa. Basically, it is also focused on America, less — on Europe. Finally, there is a stream connecting Europe and America, unlike the first two, it is two-way.
