Within 4 years, a quarter of students from Wellington College, a leading independent school in the UK, will be headed for universities in the US, Anthony Seldon, the head of Wellington College predicted.
The lure of well-funded US universities, with more broad-based course options, is proving increasingly attractive to youngsters in the UK, he says.
Though the headline price of US universities can be dauntingly high - the top bracket is above $50,000 per year - this is often offset by high levels of means-tested financial support.
From next year, students at Harvard from families earning below $65,000 per year will not have to pay tuition fees.
