Nigeria has been announced as the African country with the highest number of students studying in the U.S. by the United States government on Tuesday.

This was according to the 2016 Open Doors Report on International Educational Exchange.

The Open Doors report is published annually by the Institute of International Education in partnership with the US Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs.

Nigeria has been ranked 14th worldwide as the leading African students in U.S among other African countries.

There are 10,674 Nigerians studying in the US ahead of other African countries; Ghana with 3,049, Kenya with 3,019, and South Africa with 1,813 during the 2015-16 academic year.

The report stated that this figure marks the highest number of Nigerians studying in the United States since 1986-87.

“Students from Nigeria who studied primarily at the undergraduate level were “50.8% undergraduate; 35.6% graduate; 11.5 % Optional Practical Training; and 2% non-degree programmes or short-term studies.”
