"People have to get creative in order to sustain their programs," says
Patricia Szasz, assistant dean for Language and Professional Programs
at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey
in California.

'The Whole Industry Is Changing'
Even before the current administration, the number of students
enrolled in IEPs had tumbled 18.7 percent from 2015 to 2016,
according to the Institute of International Education's 2017 Open
Doors report. More than 108,000 students were enrolled in IEPs in
2016, with more than 21,000 coming from China. This figure represented a 16 percent decline in the number of Chinese students
compared with 2015.
The number of Saudi Arabian students plummeted by 45 percent,
with almost 21,000 enrolled in IEPs in 2016. Saudi students were hit
by stricter restrictions placed on the King Abdullah Scholarship Program
offered by their home country.
Meanwhile, the number of Brazilian students participating in IEPs in the
United States slumped 56 percent. About 4,700 students were enrolled in
IEPs in 2016 as the Brazil Scientific Mobility Program scholarships
wound down.
At the same time, competition for students to study intensive
English has increased from other English-speaking countries,
such as the United Kingdom, Ireland, Canada, Australia, New
Zealand, and Malta, says Cheryl Delk-Le Good, executive
director of EnglishUSA, which advocates for IEPs in the United
States. The organization has about 450 members, representing
universities and for-profit institutions.
In addition, more English language training is taking place in students' home countries-often offered by those who studied English
in the United States or the United Kingdom, Delk-Le Good says.
"I think the whole industry is changing," she says.
