By using the BridgeU platform’s recommendations and shortlisting data*, this report explores how interest in studying in the USA has changed between international students going to university in 2020 and 2021.
It gives valuable insights into where interest is increasing or decreasing - including by region, country and city of origin - and the regions and states in the USA which are changing in popularity.
The aim is to help US admissions teams proactively approach their international recruitment and identify new opportunities for student engagement in 2021.
*On BridgeU, after indicating whether they would consider studying in the USA, students are recommended best-fit US universities which they can then shortlist. Shortlisting is considered an indicator of high application intent.
