There have been reports filed lately about the number of British teenagers looking into going to university in the United States or Europe doubling. British teenagers indicate the high cost of living and attending university in Britain makes it even more attractive to look into being educated abroad. They also have concerns about the current quality of a UK university education and the better class conditions and facilities in many international universities.
In years past it was normal for British university students attending an international university to have family in the country in question. These days more and more students feel comfortable going to school in a foreign country and international universities have reported an increase in the number of British students deciding to attend their institution. Presently, more than 20,000 British university students are studying abroad at an international university, including about 9,000 in the United States of America. Famous people like Emma Watson and actors we have enjoyed watching on the big screen have been reported as attending Brown University in Providence, Rhode Island.
There has been such a demand from students around the United Kingdom who need to take the scholastic aptitude test (SAT) required to get into an international university centres haven't been able to keep up with the number of students applying. Centres around the UK handled about 1800 applications last year, but this year the number of students applying has increased significantly. British students desiring to take the SAT should head down to a local centre to apply, before all of the available seats are taken.
