Any data on foreign students in Germany?


Yes, there are some figures but not really up-to-date.



Nearly 190,000 foreign students studied in Germany in 2006, according to the ministry report.  

The largest contingent in Germany by far come from China, which sent over 26,000 students in 2006

Eastern European countries sent the next largest groups of students. Over 12,000 Bulgarian and Polish students and nearly 10,000 Russian students went to Germany in 2006.  

Germany is struggling to keep this ranking. After growing rapidly since 1997, the number of foreign students -- Chinese form the biggest group -- has barely budged since 2003.

More worrisome, research funded by the German Academic Exchange Service shows that only half of those enrolled in the country's institutions of higher learning successfully complete their degree programmes.

Culture shock and a failure to acclimatise to German academic life are two key reasons so many foreign students leave before completing their degrees.

Some German universities have recognized the problem. Berlin's Humboldt University organises events to help foreign students find German conversation partners, but many foreign students say they feel isolated.

German academic culture, which gives students a great deal of independence and relatively minimal supervision, also poses a challenge for foreign students who are used to structured curricula.

Soaring interest by Chinese students has led to record foreign enrollment at U.S. universities. Indians still remain the biggest group of foreign students in the U.S. ...


although these numbers are impressive, they hardly point to a student boom in the US, which annually has 18 million students.  The number of international students could double and that would not even be 5% growth.  The number of Chinese students could increase 10 fold, yet still that would be about 5% growth overall.

The title of this thread is 'foreign' or 'Chinese' students in the U.S. and as a matter of fact they contribute 18b $  annually to America's economy. Nowhere does this subject deal with the total number of students at American universities because it has nothing to do with the subject on hand.

$18 billion dollars can be had with a negligible move in interest rates...... it's not that much money in the US economy.
