International Students Heading Elsewhere

By Net Assets posted 06-14-2019 09:03 AM


(From ICEF Monitor) While the United States remains the world’s leading study destination, international student enrollment in the U.S. is down for the past two years, reports NAFSA: Association of International Educators. New international student enrollments fell off 3 percent in 2016/17 and then another 6.6 percent in 2017/18, as tracked in the annual Open Doors research from the Institute of International Education (IIE) . Other study destinations like Australia, Canada and China are building their international student populations more quickly. NAFSA estimates the cost to the US economy – of just the decline in student commencements in 2016/17 and 2017/18 – at US$5.5 billion and more than 40,000 US jobs.
