International enrollment at University of Houston-Clear Lake grew by 30 percent between the 2013-2014 and 2014-2015 academic years, earning two distinctions from the Institute of International Education.
The university’s ranking among the “Top 40 Master’s Colleges & Universities Enrolling International Students” jumped to 22 from 35 the previous year, and, for the second year in a row, UH-Clear Lake was included among U.S. universities that enroll more than 1,000 international students. The rankings were announced in the 2015 Open Doors Report on International Educational Exchange released by the Institution of International Education last fall.
At UHCL, 1,309 international students enrolled during the 2014-2015 academic year, up from 1,007 students the year before.
“Our international students are an asset to the university,” said UHCL President William A. Staples. “Not only do the international students gain access to a world-class education, but local students benefit by exposure to international cultures and ideas.”
