India again tops the list of foreign students in the US. Applications for the Fall 2006 season point to the biggest increase of 23 per cent from India, which overtook China five years ago and has been raising its share year after year.

The Council of Graduate Schools (CGS) has reported an overall 11 per cent increase in international graduate applications after two years of decline, attributed to a tight visa regime in a post-9/11 security environment.

“The increase in applications is good news and is a result of sustained efforts by the federal government and graduate schools,” said Debra W. Stewart, president of the Washington-based CGS.
