This sounds similar to the things we studied in Geography last year: why lesser developed, poorer countries seem to have the best exporting businesses and tourist industries. I won't start on my views on this subject; I wrote a seven or so page essay for an assessment about why I thought it was ridiculous that the ordinary people in countries such as yours work so incredibly hard yet don't get paid nearly as high as they should do, or get the services that we - Brits or Americans, for example - take for granted. Oh dear, I've started off again.
Wow, that's impressive! So, you're planning to study over here too then; do many people choose to study over here, or in other countries? Not many people I know go to foreign universities; I think it's getting a bit more common for people to go American universities, actually, but the majority of the people I know stay in the UK. Also, what is your schooling system like; do you have similar years and things to us? That may sound a bit weird but I have a friend in Australia, and once we were discussing our education systems; when we compared them, we kept getting really confused about the differing terminology and things.
