always dreamed of. I often speak with students who tell me that for years their parents have been emphasizing that they want them to study abroad. Key destinations are often the UK, US or Canada.

medical expenses and food. According to Bloomberg, college tuition and fees have increased 1,120 percent since records began in 1978."
