An article by Dr. Rahul Choudaha in University World News argues that international student mobility in the 21st century was affected primarily by two events: the 9/11 attacks and the recession of 2008. Both of these events led to slow growth in international student enrollment in the U.S. when compared to the UK and Australia. Nevertheless, Choudaha posits that the U.S. should continue its commitment to recruit international students for three reasons. First, Australia and the UK have recently tightened their visa requirements, which could affect their international enrollment numbers. Second, recent budget cuts in U.S. public colleges and universities have made these institutions rely more on international students as an additional revenue source. Finally, the U.S. government has expressed its commitment to attracting more international students to the United States.
