Best Schools for Foreign Students
Thursday, December 1, 2011
For students immigrating to the United States for their higher education, Newsweek ranks the 25 schools that provide a diverse environment, as well as financial aid and services to help with adjustment.
Methodology: To find the best 25 schools for international students we relied on four data points: each college’s score for diversity from College Prowler, which takes into account student responses and statistics on whether the school has, among other things, international students with a large presence on campus; the amount of financial aid per international undergraduate student receiving financial aid with data from the College Board; the percentage of student services compared to total core expenses with data from the National Center for Education Statistics; and the percent of international students among the total undergraduate population, also from the NCES. Each data point was weighted equally using z-scores (a measure of how close or distant each school is to the average within each category).
Here is the list.
