African migrants to US 'more educated' than US-born nationals and migrants in UK

Sub-Saharan African immigrants in the US are often more educated than those in the UK, the respected US-based Pew Research Center has found.

According to the research, they are also more educated than US-born nationals.

A total of 69% of immigrants in the US, aged 25 or older, have some college education, compared with 49% in the UK. The percentage is lower in France (30), Portugal (27) and Italy (10), the other three top Western destinations for sub-Saharan African immigrants.

Many sub-Saharan African immigrants entered the US through its diversity visa programme, which requires applicants to have at least a high school education.

Its other findings include:

- 63% of US-born nationals in the US had some college education, lower than the 69% among sub-Saharan African immigrants

- 30% of UK-born nationals had some college education, again lower than the 49% among immigrants in the UK

- Sub-Saharan African immigrants in the US were younger, with a median age of 38 years versus 42 in the UK.
