Zikopoulos, Marianthi, Ed.
The book provides statistical data in narrative and tabular form on the 366,354 foreign students in the United States from 186 nations. Foreign students were enrolled at 2,521 of the 2,819 U.S. colleges and universities responding to a survey for the 1988/89 academic year. Part I provides information on the annual census of foreign students in the United States, with nine chapters which include information on the overview of foreign study, geographic regions, academic characteristics, personal characteristics, distribution by U.S. region and state, distribution in two-year and four-year institutions, distribution in public and private institutions, institutions with the most foreign students, and distribution by academic level. Part II provides data on cost-of-living expenditures by foreign students. Intensive English language programs are surveyed in Part III and study abroad (by American students) in Part IV. Nine appendices offer statistics on: foreign student enrollment by institution; country or other place of origin of foreign students; fields of study; countries of other places by region and subregion; states within U.S. regions; response rates; survey materials; foreign student enrollment in intensive English language programs; and study abroad enrollments by institution.
