The number of foreign students applying to graduate schools in US rose for the second year in a row, according to a survey released yesterday.

The survey, which was conducted by the Council of Graduate Schools, said that this year's 8 per cent increase in foreign applications ? which comes on the heels of last year's 12 per cent rise ? was an indication that the US government's attempts at making the student visa process more user-friendly appeared to be working.

This year's increase was driven mainly by a growing number of applicants from India and China ? the two countries that annually send the most students to the US. Applications from Chinese students to US graduate programmes were up 17 per cent, while the number of Indian students applying rose 6 per cent. The survey said that applications from students in the Middle East rose 9 per cent.

一项于昨日公布的调查结果显示,申请美国研究生院的外国学生数量连续第二年增长。

此次由研究生院理事会(Council of Graduate Schools)进行的调查显示,继去年增长12%之后,外国学生申请人数今年又增长了8%,表明美国政府简化学生签证程序的努力似乎正在起作用。

今年外国学生申请人数增长,主要因为印度和中国的申请者人数大量增加。这两个国家每年赴美就读的学生人数最多。申请美国研究生院的中国学生增加17%,印度学生增加了6%。调查显示,来自中东地区的申请人数增加了9%。
