One effect of rising university fees in England and the falling percentage of applicants offered places is that students are being urged to go abroad — to save money while enhancing the quality of their education.
There was a time when the sun never set on the British Empire. As a result there is a long history of British expatriates sojourning all over the world. Perhaps this new diaspora of off-shored students is just the next wave. Interesting twist on globalization.
