International students admission/enrollment trend at Indiana University (IU) will give a good insight on how many students came to U.S. for education.
It’s common feeling that number of studetns should have decreased rapidly due to recession. Following chart doesn’t show the impact of recession in student enrollment.
Even though this applies only to IU, you can expect a similar trend among other universities too. IU had lot of interesting facts about International Students and here are 3 from them.

Impact on Recession
Recession in U.S. started late 2008 and it’s slowly coming to an end. Number of International students enrolled in Fall 2009 increased from Fall 2008. Number of students from India decreased by just 6.
- Why do you think students enrollment during recession increased?
- Why is there a huge increase in students from China?
- Do you think students from China had different perspective about higher education in U.S. during recession?
Looking forward to see your comments.
