U.S. enrollment sees decrease of 4 percent: IIE-IC3 joint report
Mumbai (Maharashtra) [India], September 29: Canada saw a 431 per cent growth in international student enrollment from India in five years, increasing 161,351 students from 2015 to 2020, says a joint report by the IC3 Movement and the International Institute of Education (IIE) titled “International Student Mobility Flows and COVID-19 Realities”.
The rapid growth in Canada is evident when compared with the United States. The United States also saw an increase in the total number of students from India. However, the increase of 60,236 students only resulted in a 45 per cent growth, signalling that over the past five years, students from India enrolled at higher education institutions in Canada in greater numbers and a much faster rate than in the United States. In 2020, Canada surpassed the United States and became the leading host of students from India pursuing higher education.
The number of Indian students in the United States declined for the first time in seven years, decreasing by 4 per cent in 2019/2020, driven primarily by declines in Indian graduate students and those pursuing Optional Practical Training.
The flow of international students crossing borders to pursue educational opportunities has been significantly affected by the COVID‐19 pandemic, causing higher education systems worldwide to consider the context and realities of global academic mobility before and after the health crisis. The joint paper by the Institute of International Education (IIE) and IC3 analyze significant international student mobility trends before the COVID‐19 pandemic, the role of host countries in offering academic opportunities to international students, and the increased competitiveness among countries to attract international students. The report provides an overview of the global mobility flows to and from major world regions in the 2019/2020 academic year and considers the effects of COVID‐19 on global student mobility and how the pandemic has comparatively affected international students and the countries that serve as their hosts.
Vivek Mansukhani, Head, IIE India, said, “The challenges of the pandemic will create opportunities for a breakthrough in international education. Higher education institutions worldwide are working hard to provide options for international students, including hybrid instruction models and other options for study. Their efforts to support international students and maintain a welcome environment through increased communications, mental health and well-being services, financial support, and other actions will prove incredibly important in the years to come. The focus will shift to ensure that knowledge furthers happiness and peace, helps us appreciate the reality of interconnectedness and cultivates our dormant human potential to the fullest.”

518593 622117Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I had to tell someone! 54350
