This six-part report presents statistical data on worldwide trends in student mobility and migration, national origin, sources of financial support, fields of study, enrollments, and rates of growth. Part I explores the nature of student migration worldwide and presents data on the overall numbers of students going abroad and the extent to which these flows vary over time. Part II presents results of research on the foreign student population in the United States, including population distributions by geographic areas, fields of study, and total numbers of students from originating countries and regions. Part III presents separate profiles of foreign undergraduate and graduate students, examines the geographic origins of students at each level, and analyzes other characteristics of graduate and undergraduate students, such as their primary funding source, gender, marital and enrollment status, and immigration status or visa type. Part IV presents survey findings of the number of non-immigrant foreign students enrolled in intensive English language programs. Part V provides statistical data on student mobility from the United States to other countries, and Part VI presents estimated cost-of-living expenditures by foreign students in the United States. Appendices include more detailed data on annual censuses of foreign students, and intensive English language enrollment. (GLR)
