more than 1.3 million professional British university graduates are now living abroad
(PRWEB UK) 19 September 2013
It has been reported in Expat Forum that according to the Office for National Statistics, there has been an increase of 20% in Brits leaving the country since the present coalition government took power. Additionally, a second report by the Organisation of Economic Co-operation and Development has revealed that more than 1.3 million professional British university graduates are now living abroad, with a tenth of graduates from top universities such as Cambridge, Oxford, Exeter and Durham currently working overseas. It is believed that the numbers leaving the UK per anum are now almost level with those arriving from abroad.
It seems as though British expats are split between those seeking a better quality of life somewhere more relaxed such as Spain and those taking highly paid jobs in fast growing economies such as the UAE and Hong Kong.
As an overseas removals company since 1959, Interdean are experienced in handling all manner of moves abroad, including those moving for work, retirement or to be closer to family. Closely pursuing news and developments within the industry, a representative from the firm reflects on the possible causes behind this growing trend.
“As a nation we are becoming increasingly adventurous, with more people displaying an urge to experience new cultures and countries. Advances in technology and the growth of social media are what then help to turn these plans into reality. We weren’t surprised to see growing numbers of young people choosing to live abroad, as this is when people tend to have less ties and commitments. Offering student relocation services, we have noticed a higher demand in recent years.”
