02 September, 2014

The US has received 819,644 global students, which is an all time record in the entire country’s history, whereas students’ contribution to the US economy is about $24 billion.

The Institute of International Education, in its recent report, has ascertained the same.

Assistant Secretary for Educational and Cultural Affairs, Department of State, Evan M. Ryanm, said that global education builds strong relationship and exchange knowledge between the communities and the people in the US.

The University of Memphis played a crucial role in bringing a large number of students from all over the globe to US to pursue their higher studies and also encouraged diversity while bolstering international challenges.
Only in the single last Semester University of Memphis had received 565 global students, who are seeking either degree or non-degree.

Students who are pursuing non-degree at U of M are named as exchange students as they come to study only for one or two semesters and return back to their homeland to continue their further studies. Whereas, the students who are pursuing degree are named as international students they complete their masters’ degree before returning to homeland.

Johnathon Holland, study abroad advisor of the U of M, said that most of the exchange students are from Japan, India, Korea, UK and France.

International students and exchange students must undergo Center for International Programs and Services at the U of M campus for assistance concerning everything, i.e. from student registration to cultural adjustment.
