The Washington Post recently reported on the countries contributing the most students to universities in the United States.
These numbers are important – foreign students contribute billions to the U.S. economy. The Brookings Institute estimates they paid around $22 billion in tuition between 2008 and 2013 as well as a further $13 billion in living expenses.
