The worry here is not only will the UK become an unattractive country to study in, however UK citizens will also find the UK as an unaffordable country to study in where the government will compensate overseas tuition fees through the increase of UK fees.
The UK already has been put in a negative light when analysing the effects Brexit has or will have upon international students studying in the UK. The government in this segment has been exposed to its clear focus on its benefits to the economy rather than welcoming students from overseas to develop academically where they have not had the chance…[Read more]
European countries are competing for talented young people. The UK has a natural advantage in that students have no language barrier here, but that’s not enough to overcome the negative impacts of Brexit. Ireland and the Netherlands, among others, are more than viable options for students who would otherwise have considered going to the UK.
Yes – international student numbers should be removed from immigration statistics, international students are short term visitors, and they bring enormous benefits to our economy and society. The Government should have excluded them from the figures many years ago…
Brexit for international students already creates an atmosphere of instability and uncertainty when they are already creating vision boards, planning future degrees, courses and jobs for the near future perhaps in the UK. After Brexit, not only will the UK become a less welcoming country, it will also lose the diversity of students that would come…[Read more]
I’m concerned that the UK will become a less attractive place to study (for EU students in particular) after Brexit and that this will not only have a negative impact on our economy, but also on the diversity and culture students will experience when at University…the result, a more inward-looking nation.
Brexit is likely to have a significant impact on UK study for international students. Whether you’re a current international student, someone thinking about studying in the UK in the future, or someone interested in how this will affect the education sector or your community more generally, please share your hopes, fears, concerns and wishes for…[Read more]
Not in favour of Brexit full stop. In the best light I can put it in, Brexit represents the rise of a populism based on the desire to regain control of immigration and reclaim national sovereignty from international institutions. However, there is a dark side to nationalism of which I am fearful.
Senior Brexiteers have sent the Prime Minister a document that suggests a Customs Partnership would make meaningful trade deals “impossible” to forge and render the UK’s International Trade Department “obsolete”. Do you agree? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-43969101Brexiteers send customs ‘ultimatum’ to PM The government is under pressure…[Read more]
The Remain campaign is the one I’ve been more familiar with, especially for the period from late 2016 onwards. It’s not a secret that there has been much internal squabbling within the Remain camp, and that Remainers were ideologically disorientated for months after the referendum, but it seems that the Remain camp is now performing better than…[Read more]
How well have pro-Remain and pro-Brexit campaigners been able to present their case since early 2016? Have the arguments been convincing and have they reached the right audiences? How well have the leading campaign organisations been managed? What are the key strengths and weaknesses of Remainers and Brexiteers?
Is there a growing groundswell of support for a softer Brexit…?What would you do? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-43925282‘Soft Brexit’ plan brewing in Whitehall Officials – and even some ministers – hope to convince Theresa May to stay in some form of customs union.
