EducationUSA Resources for UK teachers and advisers
If you advise UK school students interested in studying in the USA, our EducationUSA team can help. We are the official source of US study information in the UK.
We offer free advice and events for students interested in undergraduate study in the USA:
USA College Day is the largest US university fair in Europe. Each year more than 4,000 students, parents and teachers meet with over 170 US universities.
When we are informed of US universities visiting the UK for informational sessions, we list them in our events calendar.
