Assisting students moving to the UK to study has always been a service that we are delighted to offer. We actively encourage the broadening of horizons and the opportunity to really grasp the British culture.

A fall of 15 percent occurred directly after the United Kingdom raised the average price of university fees. The number of UK-born students who applied for degrees during 2012 fell by 15 percent averagely yet some institutes of higher education saw figures drop by as much as 41.4 percent. Autumn 2012 was the initial point when fees reached £9,000 and the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) blamed the increase for less UK students applying. Figures from the organisation did still show a keen willingness from foreign students with 157,116 non UK applications compared to 133,357. Chief Executive for UCAS added, ‘I did expect some depression of demand because of a decline in the young population, yet it is too early to predict any effects from changes in tuition fees.’

The interest still expressed by overseas students is encouraging for both universities and removal companies based in the UK. Interdean has been assisting with worldwide moves for over fifty years offering services such as shipping, air freight, excess baggage and storage solutions. A steady number of international students makes up a substantial amount of Interdean’s clients as a spokesperson explained, ‘Assisting students moving to the UK to study has always been a service that we are delighted to offer. We actively encourage the broadening of horizons and the opportunity to really grasp the British culture.’
