WFU ranks seventh in percentage of students studying overseas

Indian students accounted for 17.3% of the total foreign students in the US in 2016-17

The 2017 Open Doors Report is released as part of the nationwide observance of International Education Week (November 13-17), a joint initiative established by the U.S. Departments of Education and State.

"In addition to sending more students overseas than ever before, we have also been focused on enhancing the intercultural learning experience of our students while they are abroad", said Michael Brzezinski, dean of worldwide programs.

Purdue had 1,993 credit-bearing domestic students who studied overseas. Nationally, the leading home countries for global students are China, India, South Korea, Saudi Arabia and Canada. Data from programs led by faculty who completed CILMAR-sponsored training reveal that their students demonstrated a higher level of development in self-awareness, empathy, openness and curiosity, four key embedded learning outcomes in the university's core curriculum.

In global terms, the USA saw a decline in fresh enrolments this year, with almost 10,000 fewer candidates signing up; the new student count of about 2.9 lakh represents a 3% decrease from the previous year. This number also includes recent graduates who obtained employment eligibility in the United States and who are still affiliated with the university. The Chinese total surpassed 350,000 in fall 2016, up 7 percent from the previous year. They're focused in large, diverse states with top colleges like California, New York, Texas, Massachusetts, and IL.

UF Provost Joseph Glover said engineering and business programs were hit hard, with a significant decline in new students from India.

The University of Cincinnati ranked second in the state with 4,013 foreign students. "We have made a concerted effort to develop programs that focus on the history, culture and environment of particular regions that has made studying overseas more accessible to a variety of student populations".

After years of rapid growth, enrollment of first-time worldwide students in USA colleges and universities dipped last year amid concerns about political uncertainty, tuition increases, visa delays and reductions in scholarship money, an annual survey found.

Schools in the Midwest and those that are less selective saw the biggest drops in worldwide student enrollment, Goodman said.

Worldwide students brought 39 billion U.S. dollars to the American economy in 2016, through their spending on tuition, room and board, and living expenses, according to the U.S. Department of Commerce.

At the University of Florida, new worldwide enrollment - mostly graduate students - fell this fall to about 1,270 students, from about 1,880 the previous year.

Many institutions have responded to the shifting social and political situation through a series of actions, such as alerting students about changes in US policies (65 percent), issuing statements in support of global students (63 percent), and creating opportunities to discuss current USA events (54 percent). The Institute of International Education has conducted an annual statistical survey of international students in the United States since its founding in 1919 and in partnership with the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs since 1972.
