The Conversation reports how, for the fourth year in a row, the number of international students enrolled at U.S. colleges and universities has declined.

The Trump administration has tightened restrictions on who can study in the US and has also sent signals that students from abroad are not welcome.

As the Trump administration comes to an end, the new administration claims international education would be a top priority. Currently there are just over one 1 million international students studying in the U.S. This has been the case since 2015.

While the students came from more than 220 countries and territories, China and India accounted for 53% of the total, the data show.

Many international students have reacted positively to the victory of President-elect Joseph Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.
