More than 28,000 from Canada studied in the US in the 2009-10 academic year – down about 5 percent from its record high of 29,697 students in 2008-09. The 2009-10 number was good enough, however, for Canada to keep the No. 4 spot in the survey. Slightly more Canadian students come to the US for undergraduate degrees than graduate degrees.
