For the 12th year in a row, the University at Buffalo is ranked among the top 20 U.S. institutions hosting international students by the Open Doors Report, which was released Nov. 17 by the Institute of International Education (IIE) in Washington, D.C.
For 2013-14, the Open Doors Report on International Educational Exchange shows 6,504 international students at UB. This number includes students engaged in Optional Practical Training, that is, those with an F-1 student visa engaged in temporary employment directly related to their major area of study.
This figure places UB 17th among 2,900 U.S. colleges and universities surveyed. It represents an increase of 700 students, or 11 percent, over the 2012-13 total of 5,806, when UB was ranked 18th on the list.
The majority of the 20 schools ranked are state universities, but UB is the only State University of New York institution among them.
