The number of new international students, including those from India, in American universities and colleges has declined by almost 10,000 for the first time in six years, a report has found. Although, Indian students pursuing higher education in the US increased by 12.3 per cent in the last academic year, fresh enrolment dropped from 33,030 in 2015-16 to 20,349 in 2016-17.

The Open Doors report, released annually by the Institute of International Education (IIE), has pegged the total number of Indians at 1.86 lakh, making them the second largest group of international students in America, after China. China had a total of 3,50,755 students in the US. The IIE press statement attributed the slowing of growth to a number of factors, including more higher education options at home.
