The University of Cicinnati (UC), situated in Ohio is looking forward to have more indian students in the coming years reports M Saraswathy of Business Standard.
Jonanthan Weller, Director of International Admission at UV said, "India has been one of our largest international students populations for the past 15 years, with most indian students pursuing postgraduate programmes.
