Parents around the globe consider the U.S. one of the most attractive places to send their kids to university, but U.S. parents aren't quite as sure it's the best option, a survey from HSBC found.
"Despite the rapid growth of China and India in recent years, parents still hold the Western education system in highest regard," the survey of 4,592 parents in 15 countries found.
Globally, the U.S., U.K. and Germany are considered the top university destinations, with 51 percent ranking the U.S. in their top three for quality of education, compared with 38 percent for the U.K. and 27 percent for Germany, the survey found.
But U.S. parents are less enthusiastic than their global counterparts, with 37 percent saying they believe their country's education system is worse than the best education overseas, the report said. Only 33 percent of American parents said they think their country's education quality is better than the best overseas, HSBC's survey said.
