Fall in number of international studentsChemistry World.
The Council of Graduate Schools (CGS), a non-profit organisation that aims to advance graduate education and research, found that applications from prospective international students in autumn 2017 fell by 3% from the previous year. It also revealed that first-time enrolment of international graduates declined by 1% on last year.
The CGS findings came just weeks after the US National Science Foundation (NSF) released a separate report showing a 5.5% reduction in overall international graduate enrolment at US universities from autumn 2016 to autumn 2017. The NSF data also revealed that enrolment of non-nationals specifically pursuing science and engineering degrees at US universities dropped 6% on the previous academic year.
