Top Colleges for Foreign Students

  • Jessica Stahl

Finally! After complaining that previous rankings don't take into account the differences for international students (and taking some time to create a ranking of our own), we've finally found a ranking specifically for foreign students. Newsweek has come up with a list of its top colleges for international students.

Newsweek's top 10 schools for international undergraduates:

1. Mount Holyoke College (women-only school)
2. Yale University
3. Macalester College
4. Princeton University
5. Swarthmore College
6. Grinnell College
7. Brown University
8. Wellesley College
9. Babson College
10. Williams College
(see numbers 11-25 on their website)

The ranking is determined on the basis of the school's diversity (including percentage of international students), average financial aid for international students, and percentage of spending on student services.
