International Grad Enrollments Up

November 9, 2010

The number of first-time international graduate students at universities in the United States is up 3 percent in 2010 over last year, which had no growth from the year before, according to data being released today by the Council of Graduate Schools. The first-year enrollment figure is a key predictor of long-term trends in international graduate enrollments because most graduate students are enrolled in programs that last longer than a year. Officials of the graduate school group were encouraged by the increase in first-year enrollments, but at the same time, uneven patterns among who is coming are raising concerns.
