Foreign Applications to Graduate Schools Increase After Two Years of Decline
April 4, 2006
Foreign applications to U.S. graduate schools climbed 11 percent from fall 2005 to 2006, according to an annual survey conducted by the Council of Graduate Schools (CGS). However, despite this one-year increase, applications are still down 23 percent since fall 2003 as a result of significant decreases in 2004 and 2005.
Other highlights include:
- China and India had the largest growth in applicants, with increases of 21 percent and 23 percent, respectively.
- The largest increases in foreign applications by field of study came in engineering and life sciences, with gains of 17 percent and 16 percent, respectively.
- Applications from the Middle East have continued their upward trend, with an increase of 4 percent this year.
The CGS survey research has three phases: the application phase (February); the admissions phase (June); and the enrollment phase (September). For more information on this survey effort, visit the CGS Web site.
