According to the 2019 Open Doors Report on International Educational Exchange, international student numbers in the United States increased by 0.05% in the 2018/19 academic year to reach an all-time high of 1,095,299, surpassing the one million mark for the fourth consecutive year.
Marie Royce, Assistant Secretary of State for Educational and Cultural Affairs expressed her gratitude on the bountiful number of worldwide students in the U.S.
For the tenth consecutive year, China was the largest source of global students to the U.S. with 369,548 students - a 1.7% increase on 2017/18.
"While other countries work hard to attract global students, we are managing to send a message that talented foreigners are not welcome here, just when we most need them", Ángel Cabrera, president of George Mason University, said in a 2018 statement following last year's enrollment report, according to the Washington Post.
Experts said some countries, including China and India, are trying to expand and improve their own university systems, and Canada and Russian Federation have become more aggressive in recruiting foreign students, in some cases offering generous scholarships and the opportunity to stay and work in the country.
Other top markets for American schools have been Canada, Bangladesh, Brazil, Nigeria and Pakistan.
New research by The Institute of International Education (IIE) and the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational Affairs indicates that the number of international students in the United States continues to rise.

"OPT is one of our greatest strengths and we know that students value the practical experience that they gain in the United States, and it is one of our most helpful recruitment tools as a reason the student chooses to study here", deputy assistant secretary of State for Academic Programs, Caroline Casagrande, told a press conference. "While we have enhanced choices by offering study abroad programs at more times during the year, we continue to value and sustain long-term study abroad opportunities, as reflected in ranking ninth nationally for long-term study abroad participants among all doctoral-granting universities".

But booming years of growth from China have levelled off.
William & Mary has the highest percentage of undergraduates participating in study-abroad programs compared to any other public university in the United States, according to a report released November 18 by the Institute of International Education (IIE). "Higher education helps form the bedrock of our people-to-people ties with India". At UC Berkeley and UC Irvine, the number of Chinese students increased.
UC San Diego also experienced a slight decrease in undergraduates from China last fall to 1,103 from 1,202 although graduate students increased.
On the other hand, European countries have been the popular choice for US students studying overseas. Amongst much more than 500 instructional services surveyed, the quantity of newly enrolled overseas faculty college students fell by 1% as soon as extra, when the collection of whole worldwide college students fell by about two%.
"We want these Chinese students here", she added.
The data come after high-profile cases have emerged in recent months in which students from China and Iran were denied entry into the U.S.by Customs and Border Protection officials, and leading Chinese American scholars have decried what they say is a growing racial profiling of their community by federal agencies that is driving away intellectual talent.
