(IIE Open Doors Report 2010)
After several years in the number two position, behind India, China now sends the most international students to the USA, by a wide margin. The number of Chinese students in the USA rose almost 30% in one year, from 98,235 in last year's report to almost 128,000 this year.
The Open Doors Report is compiled annually by the Institute of International Education, and this year's report was released last month during International Education Week. The report also showed strong growth in the number of Saudi students in the USA, as well as a modest 3% increase overall in the number of international students in the USA.
