RIO DE JANEIRO, BRAZIL - The number of Brazilian students in US universities increased 9.8 percent last year, reaching 16,059 in the 2018/19 school year.

There has been an upturn in the growth in the number of Brazilian students in US higher education over the past two years, but the mark is still far from the peak of the last ten years, 23,600 . . .
