Universities see 15% increase in international student enrollment!

That would be in Australia, from the (London) Times.

For a cogent explanation of how higher education has been one of the U.S.’s most successful export industries – and I know how painful it must be for some of our Trustees to admit that professors have done better than timber and sneakers – see this Brookings report:

While the NYT has published a plausible scare piece on the effect of President Trump’s immigration policies on U.S. international student enrollment, and the rumors are that UO retention of international students is down, fact-based analyses won’t come out until fall. I’m guessing they’ll be grim.

    I don’t know, I would wager that they must be pretty pleased with UO’s success.

    I would be very interested to know more about how the UK, Australia, etc. handle immigration issues, compared to the U.S.

    International students aren’t down because of trump. Too early for that. They’re down because over the last two years ALL of the UC’s increased they’re international enrollment over the last two years. We’re competing with California’s defunding of the UC system now….
