International students and their families will be reluctant to go or send their children abroad given the uncertainty of the future of the second wave or next outbreak of the virus in the fall 2020. Studyportals, the Dutch-based global study choice platform, released survey results that revealed 83% of respondents believe their future travel plans will be restricted and 63% believe their parents’ savings will decrease because of the virus. More than one million international students who were enrolled in the United States in the spring semester have returned to their home countries. It is unknown how many will return to the United States for the fall semester.
