Guidance on the Go Goes to Europe
As of 2017, US colleges and universities can expect the percentage of international students enrolling in their institutions to increase by at least 1.5% to over 1.1M. According to Open Doors data, the top sending continents are China, India, and Southeast Asia, and the leading countries in raw numbers whose students opt for the American college experience are China, India, and Canada. Facts are similar for US high schools: American students, faculty, and staff can expect more Chinese students living and learning side-by-side. The Institute of International Education (IIE) reports “that the total number of students from China rose by 48 percent between 2013 and 2016.” The trend is a continued rise as many of these students and their families see American high schools as a launching pad for acceptance into American universities. What happened to Europe?
The percentages of European students have been negative for over five years from countries that once sent many students to study in the United States. To find some answers to that question and help your student appreciate or consider joining foreign students, Guidance on the Go did the broad jump over the Atlantic pond in the month of July.
Stay tuned for insights from The Netherlands, Belgium, and France as we head into August and the start of the 2019-2020 academic year.
