International Students in the U.S.


There were over 886,000 international students studying in the U.S. during the 2013/2014 academic year, according to a report by the Institute of International Education. This is a record number and an 8.1% increase on the previous academic year. Over 30% of the students came from China (274,000 students), followed by India, South Korea, and Saudi Arabia. The following countries were next in rank, all with 10,000 students or more studying in the U.S.: Canada, Taiwan, Japan, Vietnam, Mexico, Brazil, Turkey, Iran, United Kingdom, and Germany. Nearly every county on the globe has students studying in the U.S.

A key ministry that encourages college students to reach the nations is the Traveling Team. Through engaging talks on campuses across the U.S., they “educate and equip college students to become World Christians.”
