Variety of US-Certain Vietnamese College students Continues to Climb

Listed below are the newest Vietnam-related stats from the February 2023 SEVIS replace. (You may as well entry these information for different international locations utilizing the interactive map.) This can be a follow-up to my 10 January 2023 publish with details about the November 2022 replace. These are mid-year stats, that are normally not as dramatic and consequential as these for the brand new tutorial/college 12 months. Kudos to the Biden Administration for updating these stats frequently – in stark distinction with the earlier administration. (I might be proud of quarterly updates!)

There are presently 25,198 college students from Vietnam in any respect ranges finding out within the US, principally in greater training vs. 24,763 in November 2022, a modest improve of 1.76% over November 2022. Vietnam nonetheless ranks sixth amongst locations of origin.

India: 275,695 (+8.19%)

China: 266,109 (+4.8%)

South Korea: 48,701 (-.1%)

Canada: 32,067 (-.51%)

Brazil: 29,544 (+5.56%)

Vietnam: 25,198 (+1.76%)

Taiwan: 21,567 (+-.16%)

Nigeria: 20,668 (+5.3%)

Japan: 17,786 (-6.4%)

Saudi Arabia: 17,668 (2.57%)

Solely three of the highest 10 international locations recorded decreases starting from .1% to six.4%. Not surprisingly, India displaced China to take the highest spot.

Right here is a few evaluation lite:

  1. Secondary College Enrollments on the Rise: The variety of boarding and day college college students now stands at 2,004. They comprise 8% of complete enrollment vs. 7.4% in November 2022. Needless to say this quantity was 4,114 (13.4%) in March 2019. Takeaway: Boarding and day faculties that recruit in Vietnam should proceed to be aggressive of their outreach efforts. One of many major causes of this multi-year decline is COVID-19. This market section ought to proceed its restoration within the subsequent couple of years. Whether or not it can attain pre-COVID ranges is anybody’s guess.
  2. Neighborhood Schools Reducing in Reputation: Neighborhood faculty (CC) enrollment decreased barely from 3,465 in November 2022 to 3,450. The continued choice for four-year establishments might be as a result of there are extra of them than ever recruiting in Vietnam with engaging value factors – with or with out scholarships or monetary help. Many are within the higher vary of neighborhood faculties. Another excuse might be that some dad and mom who used to ship their youngsters to US neighborhood faculties are enrolling them in native worldwide universities, e.g., RMIT, due to the decrease value. This can be a results of the antagonistic financial impression of the pandemic. Identical takeaway as in my 31.10.22 publishThese neighborhood faculties which have a robust model presence and present pipelines of scholars are prone to be essentially the most profitable within the new regular period. New ‘youngsters on the block’ should develop a medium-term technique and put money into recruitment.
  3. Shift to 4-Yr Establishments Continues: The variety of Vietnamese finding out at four-year establishments elevated barely to 13,254. Identical takeaway as in my 31.10.22 publish: Since there are fewer college students enrolling from boarding and day faculties and transferring from neighborhood faculties, two essential pipelines in recent times, four-year faculties and universities should rely extra on direct recruitment from Vietnam for the foreseeable future.
  4. Graduate Applications Proceed to Achieve in Reputation: The variety of Grasp’s college students continues its upward development from 2,868 in November to 2,944, comprising 11.7% of complete enrollment. Ph.D. enrollments remained regular with a negligible lower lower from 1,967 to 1,963. Vietnamese graduate college students now comprise 19.5% of complete enrollment. Takeaway: I’ll proceed to watch these numbers to see if that is indicative of a development.

The variety of college students enrolled in language applications elevated to 774, or 3.1% of the whole. The 2 major causes for the low variety of Vietnamese finding out English within the US stay the identical: 1) it’s troublesome to get a pupil visa; and a couple of) there are extra and better high quality alternatives to review English at house now than up to now. English proficiency amongst younger Vietnamese is best than ever.

Listed below are the highest 10 host states. 47.7% of all Vietnamese college students within the US are enrolled at establishments in 5 states. (10 years in the past, about half have been in three states: California, Texas, and Washington.)

California: 3,899

Texas: 3,391

Massachusetts: 1,792

Washington: 1,538

New York: 1,398

Pennsylvania: 1,287

Florida: 1,168

Ohio: 1,097

Illinois: 1,028

Georgia: 632

Lastly, the gender breakdown stays just about unchanged. 53.6% of all Vietnamese college students within the US are feminine and 46.4% male. 2.23% of all worldwide college students within the US are from Vietnam.

The marginally greater numbers point out an ongoing restoration for examine within the USA amongst Vietnamese college students within the new regular period.

Keep tuned for the replace that displays enrollments for the 2023/34 tutorial and college years.
