FORT COLLINS - CSU has moved up one spot to No. 2 in the United States in international student satisfaction, according to a worldwide survey.

The rankings, released Thursday by International Student Barometer, were based on surveys of international undergraduates, graduate students and doctoral candidates at more than 180 universities in 15 countries.

More than 160,000 students around the world participated in the survey, according to a news release from CSU.

"We are delighted with these results," said Jim Cooney, vice provost for International Affairs at CSU. CSU ranked No. 1 in the U.S. for international student satisfaction with the academic experience and student support services, Cooney said.

"These are two of the four broad categories for the survey, and the results are even better than last year," Cooney said.

CSU also participated in the survey last year, and was ranked No. 3.

In 2012, CSU created a partnership with INTO International Partnerships to recruit potential students around the world. International enrollment at CSU has increased 39 percent in the last four years.
