As university fees rise to record highs it is no surprise that students are looking abroad
(PRWEB UK) 30 January 2013
Top American universities are embarking on unprecedented recruitment of British born students in light of increased tuition fees in the UK. Rising numbers of universities including those included in the prestigious Ivy League are looking to tempt students abroad in response of the cost of a degree nearly tripling in Britain.
Last year around 9,000 British undergraduates and postgraduates crossed the Atlantic to study and experts predict even more will do so this year. J Robert Spatig, assistant vice president for admissions at South Florida University of Tampa described the increase as a ‘carpe diem moment for recruitment of UK students. We believe that the floodgates are going to open once British students learn that tuition at many top research universities in the US may now be less than a comparable Russell Group university in the UK. This is a once in a generation opportunity to attract prospective British applicants across the Atlantic.’
The news is of course encouraging for removal and shipping experts throughout the UK. Interdean, one of the country’s premier international removals operators has seen a sharp increase in relocation interest to the US – a pattern that follows the predicted trend. A spokesperson from the company explained, ‘As university fees rise to record highs it is no surprise that students are looking abroad especially to countries like America which has such well established renowned institutions. Interdean has provided student moving services for over fifty years and can make moving abroad to America hassles free, simple, fast and affordable.’
