The Institute of International Education this week released its annual Open Doors report, which provides data on international students in the U.S. as well as on study abroad trends among American students.
U.S. News took a dive into this year’s data, which show that nearly 1 million students enrolled in U.S. universities during the 2014-2015 academic year. The overall total increased 10 percent over the previous year.
China led all countries, with 304,040 students coming to the U.S. for school. The number of students from India jumped 29.4 percent year over year to reach 132,888, while students from Brazil shot up 78.2 percent to 23,675. California, New York and Texas were the leading states hosting international students.
