The decision to study abroad is a big one and should not be taken lightly. Every year more British students are weighing up their options and deciding that going to university abroad is the right choice for them. From universities in the United States and Australia to China and Japan, the number of Brits travelling for some or all of their higher education is increasing.
If you are interested in finding out about studying a Bachelor’s course abroad you will find this event invaluable.
Mark Huntington, Managing Director of A Star Future Ltd and Study in Holland, will discuss the benefits of studying at international universities, the key reasons why British students should consider going abroad, as well as the practicalities that need to be considered when deciding if it’s right for you or not.
In our presentation we will cover the following key areas:
- What are the academic reasons to consider university abroad?
- How does international experience help British students compete in the global marketplace for jobs?
- What are the sensible options for students of competitive subjects such as medicine and dentistry?
- What is it like to live in another country as a student?
- How much will it cost and what financial support is available?
