China Daily: Visa curbs, virus challenge Chinese students in the US

July 7, 2021

From the article:

Since the Great Recession in the US more than a decade ago, different states have made significant cuts to higher education spending. Colleges and universities responded to the cuts by increasing tuition and began recruiting and admitting more high-paying international students.

For example, the University of California enrolled 15,046 international students in autumn 2010, and the number rocketed to 43,738 in autumn last year, including 25,600 from China. The 2020-21 tuition and other fees for in-state students at the university are $14,100 and those for international students are $43,900.

US higher education has been transformed by a marked rise in international enrollment since 2005, largely driven by students from China. Enrollment from China rose by 400 percent from 2005 to 2018, generating much needed revenue for universities often to the advantage of domestic students, a study by the Center for Global Development found.
