Uruguay & Argentina
In 2018 the fair in Uruguay generated thousands of engagements with talks given by UK Universities, with well over 100 potential applicants registering with us during the fair. The demonstrated appetite for studying in the UK for Uruguayans has only grown over the past year as reflected by the traffic we have seen in the 2019 edition when the fair was expanded to Argentina.
There are 8,371 Argentinian students currently studying abroad, according to the latest UNESCO figures, this is a significant number of students, yet only 208 chose the UK as their destination. There is not just potential to increase the percentage of students that go to the UK from the current numbers but to expand into the wider market as Argentina has a population of over 44 million people.
