EU students studying in the UK bring to the country enormous cultural, academic and economic benefit. The importance of these students to universities and their fellow students is significant, with many courses at both undergraduate and post-graduate level supported by students from the EU. Equally important is the impact on the regions they study in, meaning that every part of the UK benefits from their presence.
With the UK’s exit from the EU, there will clearly be changes to how established relationships operate, across a range of sectors. However, to build on the opportunities Brexit can bring, it is vital that the UK creates policies that produce real benefits to the country, one of which should be on creating an attractive offer to EU students to continue to study, improve, and invest, across the UK.
