Enrollment of foreign graduate students up

First-time enrollment of international graduate students in US higher education institutions grew by 10 per cent between 2012 and 2013 to reach 220,000, according to an analysis by the Council of Graduate Schools (CGS).

This growth follows 8 per cent increases in each of the previous two years.

The findings, released on 5 November, were part of CGS’ International Graduate Admissions Survey for 2013. The organization noted that there was a slow-down in the growth of applications submitted by international students, which rose only 2 per cent in 2013—the lowest increase in eight years.
