First-time international graduate enrollment is up 10 percent this fall, largely due to a substantial increase from India, according to a report being released today by the Council of Graduate Schools.
The 10 percent increase over all follows two years in which the gains were 8 percent, and one year at 3 percent. The first-year figure is key to many universities that rely on international graduate students because the long duration of many graduate programs means that many of those who start will be enrolled for a number of years.
By far the most dramatic change this year is a 40 percent increase in new graduate enrollments from India, which have been relatively stable (up or down a few percentage points) in recent years. That gain compensates for a much smaller increase this year from China (although those enrollments are also still going up).
