India and China send the most international students to American schools

China had the most students studying in America of any foreign nation from 2008-2012, according to a new report by the Brookings Institution. The second-highest number of international students came from India.

The disciplines that students from China and from India choose to study in the United States, though, are very different. Thirty-two percent of Indian students were pursuing engineering degrees, versus 17 percent of Chinese students. The Indian city of Hyderabad was even identified as the top source of STEM students in the United States.

Take a look at Quartz for a more complete breakdown of the report.
