Uni in the USA Summary


Uni in the USA: The UK Guide to US Universities by Alice Fishburn

What is an American university education really like? How big is the culture shock for British students? What funding is available? And how does one negotiate the application process? With 7 out of 10 of the top universities in the world in the US, there's a lot of scope for Brits to find a superb education over there. This new book sets out to answer these questions and give an objective guide to students wanting an alternative to British universities. With UK students being asked to pay large sums for a university education whose quality has been compromised by decades of under-funding, and with students from rich families being turned away in favour of kids from tough state schools, more and more are looking to the quality of courses, teaching and facilities available in the US. Enquiries to the US Educational Advisory Service rose seven-fold during 2003/4, and have already exceeded that total this year.
