Arizona State University tops the list of public institutions for international students for the third year in a row. A report by the Institute of International Education also ranks ASU as fifth overall for global learners.
International student enrollment at ASU has seen a steady climb in the previous years, and for part of the 2016-2017 school year, more than 13,000 international students called ASU home.
“More and more each year, our student body looks like the world we live in,” said ASU President Michael M. Crow. “That’s deliberate. We have made a concerted commitment to be of service to people all around the world.”
The report ranks ASU ahead of other schools like UCLA, Penn State and University of Michigan. In ASU’s company is NYU, USC and Columbia University (ranked first, second and third, respectively).
A large part of the university’s commitment to open its doors to anyone anywhere, is by offering degree programs through ASU Online. ASU Online continues to see record enrollment numbers and hosts a large population of international students.
