In the aftermath of the attacks of September 11, 2001, the US government significantly tightened the restrictions that foreign doctoral students needed to meet to qualify for student visas. Partly for this reason, the number of foreign graduate students in the United States fell by 18% from 2001-2003. In the face of strong opposition from universities and businesses needing technically skilled workers, procedures since then have been streamlined and enrolments are slowly rebuilding.
