Shakespeare lives (at StudyWorld!)

Want to find out about Shakespeare? StudyWorld is the place for you – and research shows our playwright is more popular outside the UK than inside.

A survey of 18,000 people in 15 countries found that 88 per cent of Mexicans like Shakespeare’s work compared with 59 per cent of British people. In Brazil, 84 per cent of people found him relevant to today’s world compared with 57 per cent in the UK. And 83 per cent of Indians said they understood him, compared with 58 per cent in the UK. Overall, 65 per cent of people outside the UK said they liked Shakepeare’s plays and poems, compared to 59 per cent living in the UK.

So it’s good to make the most of opportunities at StudyWorld, as Shakespeare is a big selling point for educators seeking to bring students to the UK.

Not only have we got a fantastic Shakespeare seminar on Monday afternoon, where you can find out fantastic facts you never knew – but the Shakespeare Lives exhibition stand has got an amazing virtual reality William on show, who’s ready to interact with you and answer your questions.
