The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has been a gateway to foreign-born immigrants for almost 400 years. Today, a significant number of those new arrivals are students. Because it was one of the earliest settlements in what is now the United States, Massachusetts is home to some of the oldest and most prestigious universities in the world. Foreign students have come to schools like Harvard, MIT, Smith and Amherst for generations. Today, international students have become so essential to higher education that colleges, universities and community colleges across the state are vying for their share.
University-related opportunities are easy to find in Massachusetts. In fact, Boston has a higher concentration of colleges and universities than any other city in the country, and education is an important driver of the state’s economy. Every autumn Boston, Cambridge and the surrounding communities see a huge infux of students of all nationalities. Scientists flock to the area’s hospitals and research institutions, and technology graduates are drawn to the high-tech corridor that curls around the outer rim of the metropolitan area.
