The NUMBER of Filipinos studying in the United States has increased for the third straight year, according to an annual survey of international exchange activity in the US.
Based on Open Doors data released this November, 3,320 Filipino students enrolled in US universities this past year, a 2.9-percent increase from the 3,225 enrollees in 2018.
“We are delighted to see continued strong growth in educational exchange between the United States and the Philippines and hope it will continue. Our countries share deep historical and cultural ties, and the Philippines is brimming with talent and opportunity,” US Embassy in the Philippines Cultural Affairs Counselor Matt Keener said.
“The US higher education system, with its unmatched quality and range of options, is a natural fit for Filipinos seeking an international education and we are ready to welcome the next generation of Filipino leaders,” he added.
