Parents said the U.S. was the virtually all desirable place because of their kids to study, accompanied by Australia and the U.K.

Some families could possibly be in for major sticker shock — especially if they’ve collection their sights about an American education.

HSBC said that international parents expect tuition at U.S. colleges to be $11,000 a year or less. In reality, the tuition costs will be closer to $33,000 a 12 months.

The bank said that total costs over four years, including bills, average a lot more than $180,000 at major U.S. universities.
