2 lakh visas issued in 2021: Indian students in US on rise again, now at higher rate than Chinese
NEW DELHI: The number of Indian students studying in the United States increased 19 per cent over last year to nearly two lakh compared with a 13% drop in the previous year, according to an annual Open Doors report released by the Institution of International Education on Monday.
China and India represent the majority (52%) of all international students in the United States. China remains the top sending country in 2021/22, with 290,086 students on U.S. campuses (-9% year-over-year). India, the second top-sending country, sent 199,182 international students in 2021/22, an increase of 19% year-over-year.
Even though China sent the most students in 2021, the numbers decreased nearly 9 percent from the 2020-2021 academic year. At the same time, the number of students from India increased nearly 19 percent, to almost 200,000.
Quarantine norms and travel restrictions made it harder for Chinese students to acquire visas.
The 19% increase in Indian students studying in America was largely driven by graduate students.
Math, computer sciences, engineering and business management were the three most popular fields of study among international students.
Curse india, go to USA and Come back crying when USA doesnt help!
There is some truth to that! When H-1B get laid off from Meta qne twitter, Indians cry for help! But going there everyone just ran away,
lmao ... nobody cares about India after the leave that garbage dump of a country. All that patriotism is just lip service. In reality India is a regressive, filthy, dirty, illiterate and poor garbage dump of the highest orders.
White Race Is Superior
White Majority countries are always a magnet for the non whites whose own countries are listed as unhygienic, poor, corrupted mindsets
Chinks ( Japs, Chinese, Koreans) are superior.
Good. Anybody with brains and some cash should leave that garbage dump of a country as soon as possible. Let Indians rot in reservations forever. The bright ones should leave that garbage dump of a country.
Well said. Growth comes to India many way. When economy comes under stress, the only way INR stay aflot is driven by NRI. India is thankless country.
White Race Is Superior
The White Race is superior as they are the ones which developed USA, Canada, Australia and New Zealand along with Europe. All those lands with lots of potential were underdeveloped with tribal mentality people inhabitants. The White Race is indeed a superior
The Cream of the Cream of indian intelligent people is fast vanishing to the great advantage of the US.
99.9% of these alleged students have zero interest in " studying". Their one and only goal is to " settle" down in Humrica. Everybody knows that. US professors hate them and don't want them but have to abide by University Management.
US professors hate them? Really? I am not where you get this from...but it ain't true.
From Professors over the years. They prefer white non-US followed by Chinese, Taiwanese, and S. KOREANS.
I have never heard this before...having been in the US for decades, and have been in educational settings too. In any case, there are many Indian origin professors too.
When MP CMs son has studied from US why wouldn't common Indians go there?
So what is wrong with that? They are willing to go and study for 2 years and make a life in the US. Why are you getting jealous of those who have the courage to take on loans and go and study and settle in the US?
A big clap . one student spends minimum 60 lakh Indian Rs. in education per year in US . So 2 Lakh students means 1.2 lakh Cr loss for India and Gain in US . So where the money was earned - In India . So pretty easy calculation .... Just by giving visa to 2 Lakh student per year - 1.2 Lakh Crore is wiped out of India every year .... So why the hell US wont give visa . Which student visa got rejected ??? It is the work visa which they dont give because then the flow is reverse .
Indian students go to the US for because, there are very few good institutions (Gard/Phd.) in India. In the US, good students from anywhere get admissions. at fairly good schools at least.
Wow, Indian students prefer evil US than best friend Russia. It is so hypocrital on part of Sanghi minded indians to post anti-US anti-West comments in social media.
Ha ha USA will squeeze money from their parents and then kick them out....
But students are willing to take their chances.
White Race Is Superior
White race has a higher level of IQ in comparison to the non whites. It's easily seen in the continents of North America, Australia and Europe along with New Zealand.

The United States will offer study visas because the colleges will profit. Because the US government cannot generate so many employment, students will not be granted work visas. Therefore, students who travel overseas will return to India with a hefty debt.
