Chronicle of Higher Education: Not only has the number of international students in the US been growing each year, but the percentage at the undergraduate level exceeded that at the graduate level for the first time in 11 years. Much of that growth can be attributed to China, which over the past five years has doubled its number of students in the US. Nevertheless, numbers have remained relatively flat among the nine other countries responsible for most of the US’s foreign students; included in the nine is India, which once sent more students to the US than any other country. Demographic changes and economic conditions may have contributed to the development, writes Beth McMurtrie for the Chronicle of Higher Education. If the US continues to attract international students, that could help the economy: Last year foreign students contributed a total of $21.8 billion.
