Less International Students in the US

VU International News and Reviews No. 101 November 20 2017

November 2017

The Institute for International Education has published its Open Doors 2017 data. The information is now increasingly tailored to the internet generation, with Fast Facts, Infographics, Regional data, and Places of origin. China and India still account for more than 50% of the close to 1.1 million international students in the US.

Destination countries for American students going abroad include the countries of Aurora universities: the UK (1st with >39 000 students), France (4th with > 17 000), Germany (5th with almost 12 000),  and the Netherlands (23rd with 3 433 American students). But the data seem to indicate that since Fall 2016, the overall trend of international students coming to US Higher Education institutions is downward.
