In fact, the share of Asian-nationals at American institutions is higher than it is in the U.S. overall, according to the National Center for Education Statistics.
It’s not a new issue, but now, with the release of a comprehensive 2016 study on Asian American students at U.K. universities, we know how the numbers are rising.
While the study is based on a snapshot of students at some schools, it does not account for the impact of students of other races or ethnicities.
In other words, while a minority group can be expected to make up a greater share of the incoming freshman population, that is not necessarily the case for the majority of students who come to a U.A.E. school.
