Number Of Indian Students In US Continue To Rise: Embassy Official

The number of Indian students studying in the US increased by 5 per cent since last year, coming second only to the Chinese students, a US Embassy official said on Tuesday. The growth, however, declined from last year's 12 per cent, indicating, to an extent, the cost-sensitivity of Indian students in choosing the US as their higher education destination, with a weak rupee causing a steep rise in the cost of living there. 
According to the "Open Doors 2017-18" report published by the Institute of International Education, the number of Indians studying across the US increased by 5.4 per cent to 1,96,271. 

Indians constituted the second largest community of international students, comprising 18 per cent of the total, with China topping the list with one-third of the total international students.
