NYU Among Leading Universities in Attracting International Students and Students Who Study Abroad

New York University remains one of the top American universities in both attracting international students and in students who study abroad, according to a new study by the Institute of International Education (IIE).

NYU was the top institution in students who study overseas, with 3,395 during the 2007-08 academic year—up from 2,809 the previous year, when it was also the leading institution in sending students to study abroad. It is followed by Michigan State University (2,969), the University of Minnesota (2,521), the University of Texas, Austin (2,342), and UCLA (2,330).

In 2008-09, the IIE report found, NYU attracted the second-highest number of students from abroad (6,761), behind the University of Southern California (7,482) and ahead of Columbia University (6,685), University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (6,570), and Purdue University (6,136).

The national results appear in Open Doors 2009, the annual report on international education published by IIE with funding from the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affai 500
