Abstract:

The number of globally mobile students has nearly doubled over the past 10 years, from 2.1 million students in 2001 to 4.1 million students in 2011. According to 'Open doors 2012: report on international educational exchange', the US hosted 764,795 international students in 2011/12, an increase of 3.7 per cent from the previous year. International students in the US now make up 19 per cent of the world's globally mobile students, and as university campus enrollments grow, so does the proportion of students enrolling in them from abroad. The number of US students studying abroad reached 273,996 in 2010/11, an increase of 1.3 per cent over the prior year and an increase of 78 per cent over the past 10 years.
