The Institute for International Education’s new Open Doors report reveals that the number of international students at US colleges and universities has topped 720,000 this year. This represents a record-high enrolment for the US and a five percent increase over the 2009/10 academic year.
The US gains are being led by a significant increase in the number of Chinese students studying in America. Overall, there were 23% more Chinese students enrolled in US higher education this year, including a dazzling 43% increase at the undergraduate level.
