The US is the leading destination for Chinese students pursuing overseas studies. In the 2007-2008 academic years, there were 81,127 students from China enrolled in higher education institutions in the US, up 19.8% from last year. The rise is mainly attributed to the relaxing of US visa policies.

According to the US Institute of International Education's latest statistics released in November 2008, the number of Chinese students studying in the US this year increased by 13,404 compared to last year. Overseas students for the 2007-2008 academic years brought the US huge economic benefits through tuition fees and living expenses. Enrollment of overseas students has already become an important supplement to the US economy.

Therefore, insiders are saying that in the face of the ongoing financial crisis, the US government is certain to continue to encourage students from foreign countries to study in the US. US universities will continue to welcome students from China, so the stable and relaxed visa policies for overseas students will remain in place.

It has been learned that officials from the consulates of countries such as Bulgaria and Poland located in Shanghai said recently that they will create more favorable policies for Chinese students in terms of visas and scholarships.
