With higher tuition fees and tighter immigration policies for international students , the Universities UK President Steve Smith sat down with China Daily last week and explained "why study in the UK." Smith was on a lecture tour at a couple of Chinese universities in Beijing. 

Two weeks ago, Smith also joined the UK Prime Minister David Cameron in Beijing as part of the UK government mission to China.
