Argentina, with a population of over 40 million, is the fourth largest country in Latin America. During the 2015/2016 academic year, 2,201 Argentinians enrolled in US universities, a figure that increased a 7% compared to the 2014/2015 period. Graduate degrees continue to be the most common pursuit for students from Argentina, with the most popular areas being engineering, law, and business. For Argentinians already traveling to the US, interest in intensive English programs is increasing, especially during the Southern hemisphere´s summer vacation months of January-February.
Argentina continues to be one of the most popular study abroad destinations, ranking 18th worldwide according to the most recent Open Door report. About 4,300 American students study here each year.
