Brexit Update by Placement UK (February 2018)

Record number of foreign students want to come to Britain!

Brexit isn’t putting off international students. Instead, it has focused people’s attention on the strength of British universities.

A record number of international students applied to British universities this year. The data was released by UCAS (the UK organization that manages applications to British universities).

According to UCAS, the number of applications from EU students has risen this year for courses starting in the autumn. Last year’s slump in applications lead to fears over the future of the UK’s universities.

Alistair Jarvis, the chief executive of Universities UK, said: “The increase in international applications shows that the UK remains one of the most attractive destinations in the world for talented, international students.”

The message is clear: BRITAIN REMAINS OPEN to international students, both for studies and internships.
