The first-time overseas graduates in the US decreased by 6.6% in 2017 though it still hosts more than a million overseas students. This has been revealed by the non-profit that monitors overseas exchange in education IIE.
However, in spite of its timing, the decrease is not a Trump side effect totally. The US has the 2nd highest rates for tuition amongst the countries with top-ranking schools. The UK tops this list.
Very fewer schools in the US offer considerable discounts to overseas students. Cut from major feeder countries has a huge impact on the population growth of overseas students.
Majority of the reputed US schools are improving when it comes to assisting overseas students in earning their diplomas. This is notwithstanding the external factors.
The average graduation rate for overseas students grew by 6% to 76.8% between 2007 and 2017. This is at the 293 US schools considered for the ranking.
Applicants seeking to invest in US education have just basic metrics collated by the Federal Government such as the enrolment and graduation trends. Beyond these, they do not have adequate data for basing their decisions.
