Mark Huntington

Managing Director, A Star Future

Mark Huntington is the founder and managing director of A Star Future Ltd. Over the last twelve years his company has played a leading role in increasing awareness of and participation in international higher education amongst British students. By providing advice and guidance in a structured and appropriate manner he has seen intercontinental and intra-European mobility increase significantly.

Mark has advised over 70 international universities and governments on changes in UK higher education policy and their impact on student behaviour. In 2011, he launched, a website dedicated to explaining the Dutch higher education system to the British. The website has been featured in national TV and radio and Mark has also been a regular contributor to media coverage of UK outbound student mobility.

In recent years, he has expanded the company to assist directly students looking for places at medical and dental schools in Europe. He is also a member of the Advisory Board of Prague College, a private provider of British-accredited higher education in the Czech Republic.

Mark is a passionate believer in the benefits of international experience and can attribute much of his career success to living and studying abroad earlier in life. His mission is to make studying abroad just one of the many normal career options on offer to British students when they leave school.
