The University of Kansas has had a steady increase in the number of graduate applicants from India and China.
Thomas Heilke, dean of graduate studies at Kansas, said applications for graduate study from India increased 20 percent from this time a year ago. He says similar applications from China went up by 7.4 percent.
Charlie Bankart, assistant vice provost for international programs, said China, still is the country that sends the most international students to the University of Kansas. He said India had 270 students apply in 2012, while China had 872.
Heilke said the overall increase in graduate international applications -- up 9 percent from last year -- is right in line with the national average.
