Foreign enrollment at US colleges sees biggest growth in 35 years

According to a recent Open Doors Reports on International Educational Exchange released by the Institute of International Education, the number of international students enrolled in US universities increased dramatically in 2014, by 10 percent, the highest rate of growth in 35 years.

The strong growth of international students confirms that the United States remains the destination of choice in higher education, with China and India making up the two largest sources for the surge, making up nearly 45 percent.

The report also found the number of U.S. students studying abroad increased by five percent in 2013/14, the highest rate of growth since before the 2008 economic downturn.

The Open Doors report is published annually by the Institute of International Education in partnership with the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
