Now THAT'S a headline you don't see every day. (Follow this link to read the article from which it was taken.) While the current anti-immigrant, anti-foreign climate in the US is not ideal for these types of proposals, I'm pleased to see that this issue is (still) being discussed. The notion that certain international students … Continue reading “Hillary Clinton promises Green Card to STEM F-1 visa students who graduate with a Master’s/doctoral degree”

“These Obscure Colleges Sign Up Thousands Of Foreign Students With Little Oversight”
Both Northwestern Polytechnic and Silicon Valley University are accredited, a distinction that allows colleges with many foreign students to avoid the most stringent oversight. Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s student visa program depends on the accreditation system: it requires less documentation from accredited schools that want authorization to admit foreign students than it asks of unaccredited … Continue reading “These Obscure Colleges Sign Up Thousands Of Foreign Students With Little Oversight”

USA is Once Again the World’s Leading Host of Vietnamese Students; Ranks 6th Overall
Ranks 6th Among All Sending Countries As I predicted earlier this year, Vietnam has surpassed Japan in total enrollment in the US, most of it in higher education.
