With so many young people holding degrees it is important to set yourself apart from the rest and studying abroad can really make the difference.

The 2012/2013 QS World University Rankings show the number of students choosing to study abroad is greater than ever before. In addition, last year showed a huge increase in the number of international students in the world’s highest ranked universities, with 10 percent of those studying at universities in the Top 100 rank being of international origin. Furthermore, those institutions of higher education that fall in the Top 700 of the best in the world, over 4 percent is made up from international students. Figures are the highest ever in all 72 countries that are represented in the survey carried out every year.

Steve Woodfield, a senior researcher in higher education policy at the UK’s Kingston University, suggested the reason for this was simple; students just want the best from university as possible. ‘There is a continuing unmet demand for good quality higher education in many countries, particularly Asia, combined with a willingness amongst potential students to travel and to pay for high quality overseas study.’

Interdean has been assisting students move abroad to study for over fifty years offering air freight, shipping and storage at reasonable prices. The company is said to be delighted to hear of such high numbers studying overseas including Brits heading to destinations such as the USA and Asian students coming to the UK to study. A representative from the moving company added, ‘With so many young people holding degrees it is important to set yourself apart from the rest and studying abroad can really make the difference.’
