Interesting Fact - Education

50 years ago only 5% of young people in the UK went to university.

(The ONS (Office for National Statistics) found that 27.2% of the UK population aged 16 to 74 had a degree or equivalent or higher, and according to the UK government's universities minister, David Willetts, the number of places at UK universities will have to grow by at least a quarter over the next 20 years.

We have a long way to go to beat Finland though: In Finland 80% of young women are now going to university.

Going to university may become as natural as going to school.)
