In the academic year 2022-23, Indian students continued to move towards US for studies with 2,68,923 enrolments compared to 1,99,182 in the preceding year. As result, India consistently holds the second position in the list of countries sending students to the US, trailing behind China with 2,89,526 students. Notably, India exceeds all other nations with an impressive 35 percent increase in student enrollment in a year.

Enroll after proper research: 

Christopher Hodges, the US Deputy Consul, attributes the 35% surge in Indian students heading to the US to the robust relations between the two countries. He emphasizes the American educational institutions' focus on research in both undergraduate and graduate programs, encouraging students to tackle challenging problems alongside academic pursuits.

Make Informed Decisions:

Hodges urges Indian students to conduct thorough research before making decisions and highlights the role of the US-India Educational Foundation (USIEF), operating at the US Consulate in Chennai. With over 4,000 accredited educational institutions in the US, USIEF provides free assistance to help students choose their preferred departments and colleges.
