The report shows that 325,339 American students received academic credit last year at the home campus for study overseas in 2015/2016, an increase of four percent from the previous year.

In New Delhi, Karl Adams, deputy cultural affairs officer at the United States embassy, said that though he would not speculate on the reason for the lower numbers, the 12.3% increase in the number of Indian students in the U.S. was certainly a great number and his country "welcomes" genuine Indian students. Twenty-five percent of all students who studied overseas were majoring in STEM fields at their home institution, a number which has been growing faster than the average, followed by business and social sciences. Almost 500 college and university officials reported the overall number of enrolled students was flattening, with an average decrease of 7 percent in the number of newly enrolled global students for 2017-18. For the second consecutive year, USA colleges and universities hosted more than 1 million worldwide students, reaching a record high of 1.08 million.

The list has been topped by China with 350,755 students followed by India with 186,267 students. Furthermore, the record also marks the eleventh consecutive year of continued expansion for the total number of global students in U.S. higher education, said the report.

These numbers were not evenly distributed: 45% of the campuses reported decline in new enrolments for fall 2017, while 31% reported increase in new enrolments and 24% reported no change from past year.

Worldwide students in Chicago say USA universities offer some of the best research opportunities in the world.

"Through study overseas, our students are developing global mindsets that reflect intercultural curiosity, understanding and empathy, and the impact they can have on the greater good in the world", said Taylor.

IIE president and CEO Allan E Goodman said that countries and multinational employers around the world are competing to attract top talents.

"International student exchange is an essential contributor to America's economic competitiveness and national security".

Noting that students continue to be attracted to the high quality and diverse opportunities offered by colleges and universities in the USA, he said it is critical for United States institutions to set strategic goals and be proactive in reaching out to students and families in a wide range of countries in the coming year.

The colleges cited several factors in declining enrollment, including competition from other countries, the cost of USA higher education, visa delays or denials, and an uncertain US social and political climate, the institute said.

The top host states were California, New York, Texas, Massachusetts, Illinois, Pennsylvania, Florida, Ohio, Michigan, and Indiana. Almost 10,000 fewer candidates signed up this year taking the new student count to about 2.9 lakh, a 3% decrease from the previous year.

The University of Cincinnati ranked second in the state with 4,013 foreign students.

The scaling back of large Saudi and Brazilian government scholarship programs were a significant factor, said Rajika Bhandari, research and evaluation specialist for the Institute of International Education.

The survey offers only a preview of this year's trends and was released alongside the institute's annual "Open Doors" report, which tracks worldwide students at 3,000 US schools but lags a year behind.
