This report presents findings, in narrative and tabular formats, of the 1992-93 annual survey of foreign students in the United States based on data from 2,783 accredited institutions of higher education. Part I examines foreign study worldwide focusing on countries of student origin and leading host nations. The eight chapters of Part II examine foreign study in the United States. Chapter 1 looks at overall foreign student enrollments (which increased 4.5 percent over the previous year). Chapter 2 groups students by origin (59.4 percent from Asia). Chapter 3 addresses academic characteristics (business and management is the most popular field). Chapter 4 provides data on personal characteristics (a record number of women, making their representation among foreign students [37%] the highest ever). Chapter 5 addresses distribution of foreign students in the U.S. (25 percent attend institutions in the Northeast). Chapter 6 shows numbers of students at two-year and four-year institutions, Chapter 7 examines numbers of students in public and private institutions, and Chapter 8 shows which institutions have the most foreign students. Part III reports on a sub-survey on students in intensive English language programs. Part IV contains data on U.S. students studying abroad and Part V offers data on cost-of-living expenditures by foreign students in the United States. Appendices include: (1) information on the study methodology, survey materials, and enrollment data by institution and country of origin; (2) information on the survey of Intensive English language programs; (3) information on the U.S. study abroad survey; and (4) a key to codes.
