This report provides statistical data on 419,600 foreign students from over 200 countries studying at U.S. higher educational institutions. The report identifies trends in student mobility and migration, national origin, sources of financial support, fields of study, enrollments, and rates of growth. The book's extensive tables and analyses are organized into six parts. Part I explores the nature of student migration throughout the world, based on data collected by Unesco published in Unesco's Statistical Yearbook 1991 or obtained directly from major countries. Part II provides specific data on foreign students in the United States, their geographic origin, their academic interests, personal characteristics, and dispersion throughout institutions in the U.S. 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 foreign 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 provide detailed supplementary data including annual censuses of foreign students by institution and numbers enrolled in intensive English language programs by institution. (GLR)
