EXPATS are facing increasing competition from local parents for places at international schools, research has found.

Local children now account for 80% of international school places, in stark contrast to 30 years ago when the opposite was true.

The higher demand for places has led to a huge increase in fees, according to a study by ISC Research, part of the International School Consultancy Group (ISCG).

The international schools market generates €25.5 billion in fee income, from more than three million students globally.
