New Delhi: For the second year in a row, a record number of Indian students went to the US to pursue higher education. According to the Open Doors Report released on Monday, almost 2,00,000 Indian students chose the United States as their higher education destination in the 2021-22 academic year, a 19% increase over the previous year.

Nearly 21% of the over one million foreign students studying in the United States are Indian students.

Minister counselor for public diplomacy Gloria Berbena congratulated India on leading the globe in the number of students choosing the United States and said, "It's clear Indian students and their parents recognise the value of a US education, one that prepares them to leverage their newly gained know-how to tackle the world's challenges and readies them for future opportunities, whether that's in Artificial Intelligence, emerging technologies, or entrepreneurship and innovation."
