US attracts UK students
Whilst United Kingdom has been hitting headlines for attracting overseas students, especially from India, the students of UK-on contrary-are looking at western countries. This piece of information recently went air on various television channels that reportedly mentioned that the students are leaving for other countries apparently because of soaring tuition fees.

It has to be mentioned that this concern came for discussion in the recently concluded Headmastersí and Headmistressesí Conference. The sources close to the delegation told us that students from over 200 leading schools that were charging heavy tuition fees were losing out on its studentsí strength to foreign universities, which presumably offer the same world class education, however at a low tuition fee.

Notably, a study was also carried out by Maastricht University that highlighted the same aspect. Over 80% of UK students flocking to overseas were finding US as their viable option, stressed the study.

All in all, it looks like UK might soon lag behind in terms of overseas education given the expenses incurred for higher studies.
