David Cameron believes that by focussing on education and producing the best graduates, Britain will position itself at the top of the global stage over the next few decades.
Talking ahead of the London 2012 Olympics this morning, the British Prime Minister said that getting education right in any country is a huge challenge. He acknowledged that the changes in fees that will come into play this September was a difficult decision to make, but argued that this will in turn bring strength, as British universities would be well funded into the future, ensuring that the country continues to produce the best graduates from the best universities in the world.
The Prime Minister’s speech comes a day before the Olympics starts in London, where the games are expected to attract visitors from around the world for business, education and tourism. But Cameron believes that, “the legacy of these Olympics can be about many more things as well as great sport”.
He offered his word to students that those who speak English and have a place at a British university would be welcomed to the country, with no limit on places available. The Prime Minister also spoke about the open vibrant economy that he wanted the games to produce, enhancing sectors such as Engineering, Medicine, Business and Computing. For graduates wishing to pursue careers in any of these sectors, the British Prime Minister’s message was clear: Britain is best.
