Overseas student’s enrollment in US Universities increased under F-1 student visas
US Universities are experiencing an increase in the enrollment of overseas students under F-1 student visas. According to a weekly report, the average international student enrollment in the top 20 MBA full time program has been increased by 33.4% from 30.2% in spite of the economic crisis when visa and financing issues prohibited many international applicants from enrolling.”
In 2011, 46% of the programs experienced a growth in the foreign student applications under F-1 student visas. Potential students from the Asian Pacific countries had sent the highest number of applications. Female applications from countries like China, Vietnam and Taiwan are more for post Graduate business degrees.
According to the report the reason for the increase in international students is because there is a higher approval rate for F-1 student visas mainly because of US Secretary Hillary Clinton’s push to get more international students to study in the US.
Ann Stock, Assistant Secretary of State said, “Because of the excellence and diversity of our colleges and universities, more students worldwide are choosing to study in the United States, young people who study abroad gain the global skills necessary to create solutions to 21st Century challenges. In turn, international students globalize our campuses and communities.”
