I was reading a great article in the Wall Street Journal this weekend titled “Saudi Students Flood as U.S. Reopens Door” by journalist Ellen Knickmeyer.
Here is an interesting international student statistic pulled from this article.
“This past school year, Saudi Arabia sent 66,000 students to U.S. universities, four times the number before the 2001 attacks and the fastest-growing source of foreign students in the U.S., ahead of China, according to the Chronicle of Higher Education. The Saudi influx is part of a broader increase in international students in the U.S. as American universities seek to raise tuition revenues. Some 723,277 foreign students enrolled during the 2010-2011 school year, up 32% from a decade ago.” See the link here to read the full story
