The Story Behind Foreign Student Enrollment

New research provides greater transparency into foreign student enrollment in US higher education institutions.

Enrollment and retention rates remain significant challenges for colleges across the US, leading to a growing trend of foreign student enrollments in US higher education institutions. In addition, changes in demography and the economic landscape are shaping the way schools continue to recruit foreign students and partner with local industries and businesses to retain international graduates within the US workforce.

New research from the Global Cities Initiative—a joint project of the Brookings Institution and JPMorgan Chase—aims to equip educational, civic and government leaders with insight into the demographics and economics of foreign student enrollment and which industries and regions international graduates are most likely to pursue post-graduation.

Analysis includes:

  • Top origin cities and countries of foreign students
  • Top destination institutions
  • Levels of degrees pursued, from bachelor’s to Ph.D.
