International Statistics & Requests for Research

International statistics

OIS provides statistics—available to the public—about the international student and scholar population at Indiana University.

Note: By default, the statistics page shows information for the entire Indiana University system. You may filter by campus to see IU Bloomington–specific statistics.

Access statistics

Data requests for research

IU faculty doing research may apply for access to subjects within the IU Bloomington international student population. We will assist researchers—including those conducting graduate work at the thesis or dissertation level—whenever possible.

Please review the international statistics on our website first. In some instances, we may be able to provide datasets and statistical reports compiled by OIS.

We are happy to share student data that is not confidential (with appropriate approval). Contact us to find out if the information you seek is something we have and can share with you.
