Percentages of international students in art vs. science
« on: October 14, 2014, 02:16:39 AM »
I was just wondering....

Would there be more international students attending colleges and universities who are in the science rather than the arts because their family is in that subject area and made money from it?  ie Science jobs make more than arts jobs.  More people with a science background can afford to send their kids abroad.

Although I suppose business might trump science... I don't think a whole lot of foreign countries are flocking to the U.S. for business education/innovation though.

And there would be rich parents who send their music kid to the U.S. to study.  There would always be some rich people sending their kid abroad to study any topic.

tbh a lot of internationals over here in Australia do commerce, e.g. accounting/finance. Very few in my opinion do science, especially chemistry or biology, since the amount of material to be memorized is all in complex english vocabulary.
