The number of Chinese international students in the US saw its lowest growth rate in a decade - 0.8% - to reach 372,532 in the 2019-20 academic year, according to a report released on Monday.


China remains the top source of international students in the US, and students from China accounted for 34.6% of the slightly more than 1 million international students in the US during the 2019-20 academic year, said the 2020 Open Doors Report, compiled by the Institute for International Education. 


The report also shows that international enrollment fell 16% this fall at more than 700 schools surveyed. The flow of new international students into US institutions plummeted 43% from the previous year. Nearly 40,000 international students have deferred enrollment.
