New Delhi, Nov 13 (PTI) The number of Indians who travelled to the United States for higher education increased by 35 per cent and resulted in an all-time high of 2,68,923 students in academic year 2022-23, according to a report.

Indian students constitute more than 25 per cent of the over one million foreign students studying in the US and for the third year in a row, a record number of Indian students travelled to the country to pursue higher education, the Open Doors Report said.

“You did it, India! Each and every Indian student in the United States and the families supporting their success deserve recognition for this achievement. The decision to study abroad, and your choice of the United States, represents a valuable investment by you and your families. You are bringing our countries closer together and leading us towards a bright future,” said Eric Garcetti, US Ambassador to India.

“We celebrate the strength of the Indian educational system that prepares students to compete globally and look forward to seeing India continue to lead,” Garcetti said.

“We also look forward to balancing these record numbers. We want to see equal numbers of women pursuing studies in the United States and see more US students coming to experience all that India has to offer,” he added.

According to Open Doors Report data, India surpassed China to become the largest source of international graduate students in the United States for the first time since 2009-10. The number of Indian graduate students rose by 63 per cent to 1,65,936 students, an increase of nearly 64,000 students, compared to last year, while Indian undergraduate students also increased by 16 per cent.
