Fewer International Students in U.S. Grad Schools

Chinese Today, Posted: Aug 27, 2009

NEW YORK--- Fewer international students are being admitted to U.S. graduate schools in 2009 due to the economic recession and high unemployment rate, International Daily News reports. A study from the Council of Graduate Schools shows that admissions of international students dropped by 3 percent this year, which is the first drop since 2004. International students have always been an important source of revenue for universities. Admissions of students from China and the Middle East are still increasing by 13 percent and 10 percent respectively, but the overall decrease in international students has affected universities' income.
