The Race for Talent - A Forum on International Students in America

International house

October 30, 2018
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
Home Room, International House

In collaboration with Berkeley Global Engagement.

While the U.S. continues to lead in enrolling international students, both at the undergraduate and graduate levels and in public and private universities, new trends are emerging, raising questions about future patterns: 

  • What factors will play the strongest role in international students’ enrollment decisions? 
  • How do issues such as national politics, a welcoming environment, tuition and cost of living in the U.S. affect students’ choices?  
  • Which countries are seeing greater numbers of international students and why?
  • What lies ahead?

Three distinguished experts will provide information on international student mobility, assessing the options with which students are presented---different nations, academic programs, branch campuses, online programs, and more
