HYDERABAD: Indians constitute more than 17 per cent of the international students currently studying in the US, said US Consul General Katherine Hadda. She was addressing students at the pre-departure orientation of the US-India Education Foundation (USIEF) here at the Centre for Cultural Resources and Training (CCRT) on Friday.

“You all will now join this confederation of more than 10,00,000 international students and more than 1,80,000 Indian students who are pursuing their higher studies at the 4,500 accredited institutions in the United States,” she said. She added: “While we are still striving to achieve better balance in the number of men and women from India who study in the United States, the presence of women here today encourages us to redouble our efforts to ensure that young women are aware of all the opportunities available to them abroad,”. She told the students that while pursuing their career in US, they would act as cultural ambassadors from India.
