The average number of times a person travels overseas per year, according to the latest research from the Suny Study abroad program, is 1.3.
But the number of people who study abroad as a result of their work or studies has risen sharply in recent years.
The number of international students has grown at the same rate as the number working overseas.
In the same period, the number studying abroad as part of a degree program has grown by just under 100%.
“There are more people than ever in the United States studying abroad,” said study abroad expert and former dean of the College of William & Mary, Peter S. Sommers.
“The number of foreign students studying abroad has skyrocketed.
This is partly because people are coming back from work, because they want to learn something new, and partly because they are returning to their families in the States for the holidays.”
While most students are in the US to complete their degrees, the program has also been used to train more than 1 million people to work in international markets.
“In my view, the more international students that are coming here to work, the better the prospects for our country’s economic recovery,” Sommer said.
“As a country that relies heavily on international trade, we should be encouraging our students to study abroad.”
What are the benefits of working abroad?
According to the Sunys Study abroad data, international students make up roughly 17 percent of the total number of Americans studying abroad, while about 16 percent of all international students are studying abroad for graduate programs.
The Suny study also found that the median annual income of international student workers is about $40,000, while the median salary for US-based students is $61,000.
The median age of students is 22.
In general, international student jobs typically pay well above the national average, but the median wages are lower for people from the Middle East and Asia.
Some international students have found jobs in high-end, high-tech industries, such as healthcare and engineering.
But some have also found work in less-affluent areas, including low-wage service jobs.
The average income of the international students who work in this industry is only about $30,000 a year, and the median pay for students in the lower-paying service industries is about 40 percent less than for students working in the higher-paying industries.
International students who earn less than $15,000 also make up about 16 to 17 percent (of the total total) of all students who receive free or reduced-price tuition at U.C. Berkeley.
While they are making money, many of them struggle to find affordable housing and pay rent, and some are forced to commute to school, where they are often the only non-English-speaking students.
“I do think that, with this influx of international-student workers, we have to be looking at ways to increase the supply of affordable housing in the communities they’re living in,” said David Lea, a senior research fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative think tank.
“That’s one of the ways we can do that, which is to make sure we don’t have a situation where people who have been here so long and have families are being priced out of the housing market.”
What is the best way to go about finding affordable housing?
Lea said that a key to finding affordable rental housing for international students is to start looking for apartments that match the cost of housing in their city.
For example, if an international student is earning $60,000 and needs a studio apartment in a mid-sized city like Los Angeles, then they may need to rent out an apartment to an international college student to get the rent down.
“For a student from the United Kingdom, the typical rent for an apartment in Los Angeles would be about $1,400 per month,” Lea explained.
“If the international student were to be living in a lower-cost, cheaper neighborhood in the same city, they might be able to afford a studio rental, which could be more affordable.”
For those living in cities that are close to UC Berkeley, Lea suggested that international students should also consider the possibility of moving to a more affordable neighborhood near campus to make it more affordable for them to live.
“We have an opportunity for them, and we can’t do that if they are not in a place where they can afford to move,” Leas said.
