US officials to take closer look at foreign student visas
The US Department of Homeland Security, or DHS, has ordered heightened scrutiny of international students entering the United States following the Boston bombings in April. International students entering the country have already been screened and vetted more closely than any other visa category. While the increased scrutiny of international students may cause delays at border control, this will likely not deter students from applying to study in the US, as the perceived breadth of academic opportunity in the US continues to attract students in growing numbers, said Institute of International Education President Allan Goodman.
