US Universities Seek More UK Students

With the sharp rise in university tuition fees in the UK, many more students are now looking for alternatives overseas.

In the US alone in 2011/12, over than 9,000 British students took higher education courses, but this is set to grow as more and more US universities market themselves to British candidates.

A record 170 US institutions will exhibit at  London's USA College Day event in London tomorrow, Britain’s largest US higher education recruitment fair. World Class universities touting for British interest will include Harvard, Yale, MIT and many more.

At least 4,000 people are expected to attend.

US universities report that the numbers of British students admitted in 2012/13 are up, and, with the gap in fees between US and UK institutions beginning to close, could this mark the start of a growing trend?
