EducationUSA is piloting an intensive English and college preparation programme targeting international high school students in a bid to entice students at a younger age to consider studying in the country's higher education system.

Rejections of visa applications to study English in the US have soared in Turkey in recent months, causing panic among agents and US ELT providers for whom Turkey is a key source market.
