The Open Doors Report on International Students Exchange for the year 2014 has placed Arizona on the 18th slot with 15,442 foreign students in the academic session 2013-2014, which is 2,000 figures more than last year. With 8,683 students comprising more than half of the Arizona State University’s foreign admission, the ranking of this university is now the eighth highest among the schools in the country.
This surge is attributed to the principle of supply and demand. For countries like India and China, there are more candidates than number of educational institutions to take them in. Deputy vice president for research and evaluation at the Institute of International Education, Rajika Bhandari is reported to have said that the demand is such that students will automatically turn to other foreign nation for education. She also said that U.S. was known for its wide variety of schools.
