Nigeria Has More Int'l Students Studying In the US Than Any Other African Country (Good or Bad Report?)
Students from Nigeria study primarily at the undergraduate level: 50.8% undergraduate; 35.6% graduate; 11.5 % Optional Practical Training; and 2% non-degree programs or short-term studies. Interestingly, the top five institutions that have received the most Nigerian students are all located in the state of Texas: Houston Community College, the University of Houston, the University of North Texas, Texas Southern University, and the University of Texas at Arlington.
Other African countries with over 1,000 students in the U.S. during this period include Ghana with 3,049, Kenya with 3,019, and South Africa with 1,813.
The Open Doors report is published annually by the Institute of International Education (IIE) in partnership with the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.
