The Institute of International Education’s Open Doors® project, supported by a grant from the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, is an annual comprehensive information resource on international students and scholars studying or teaching at higher education institutions in the United States. It also tracks U.S. students studying abroad for academic credit at their home colleges or universities.
The following Infographic shows some of the statistics from the most recent Open Doors report relating to international students studying in the U.S. Although the IIE’s international student statistics include only students enrolled at U.S. colleges or universities — not statistics on high school or youth exchanges — I thought some of my readers might be interested.
