Foreign Enrollment at US Grad Schools Picks Up
(WASHINGTON) -- They're coming to America -- to go to graduate school, that is. A new report from the Council of Graduate Schools (CGS) reports that graduate school applications from outside the U.S. were up seven percent in 2013, compared to just two-percent growth from the year before. The top seven countries of origin for international grad students are Brazil, Canada, China, India, Mexico, South Korea and Taiwan, making up 86 percent of all foreign enrollment.
Interestingly, there was a whopping 32-percent increase in applications from India last year while China was off one percent from 2012. Currently, international grad students compromise about 15 percent of those attending post-college schools in the U.S.
