Cynicism about the lower fees and entry requirements at overseas universities have disappeared over the last few years.

US universities are embracing a once-in-a-generation opportunity to attract British students.
Until recently, a UK student on a European campus could bank on modest celebrity status. They were a rare breed, and sightings at the library, lecture hall or bar caused quite a stir. But that's all changing.

Forget about speed dating. Those looking for love could do worse than sign up for a Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) course. "We're calling it the China love affair," jokes Vicky Cunningham, senior marketing officer for Bunac, a gap-year provider offering work, teaching and volunteering experiences abroad. "A guy and a girl have just come back from our six-month China programme, doing teaching internships. They met out there and fell head over heels.
