We've spent the first half of this week getting realistic - talking about the situations in which someone might choose not to study in the U.S. Coincidentally, The Telegraph newspaper published a story yesterday explaining why studying in the U.S. is a great option for British students.

"Many world-class institutions in the US are not well known in Britain, but thanks to a less specialised curriculum, the US can be the right place if you want to expand your horizons rather than narrow your study options," they write, talking to two students about why they decided to attend college in the States.
