AUAP announces: 582 984 Foreign Students in American Universities (+3.9%)

Published May 15th, 2008 - 07:19 GMT

This record number is probably due to the weakness of the US Dollar and the quality of the US Higher Education system. Foreign students represent 3.9% of the total student population.

Without bragging, we remind you that there are 17 US universities in the top 20 universities of the  World University rankings done by the Shanghai University. 
Koweit has 1633  students in the US.  (64.3% being at the undergraduate  level  toward a Bachelor's degree). India is the number one with 83 833 students  (+9.6%), China (PRC)  (#2) 677 23 (+8.2%) and South Korea (#3) 62 392 (+5.7%). In Europe, Germany is the leader with 8 656 students (-2%) followed by the United Kingdom  8 438 (+2%). In the Arab world Saudi Arabia is #1 ahead of Lebanon and Egypt. The University of Southern California (USC) is the university which has the most foreign students ahead of Columbia (NYC)  and New York University (We have at your disposal many other statistics for your article).

AUAP establishes a special classification of US Universities for foreign students. It includes, on top of the classic criteria (Quality, Starting salary, Selectivity, Tests average, etc) an important factor (40%) quantifying the international image of  each university.
