Brexit: What will happen to foreign students

The world is in debate as to what will happen after the referendum in the UK on June 23rd. As a result, 52% of British citizens voted to exit the EU and the main question, which concerns CIS students today, is how this will affect them.

It sounds strange, but it will be better for international students.

First of all, the falling of the British pound reduces the costs to live and study in the UK which is fortunate for both students and parents. For today, the UK is the most expensive country.

Second of all, after EU citizens have work permissions revoked, foreign students from CIS countries will have more chances to get the job in the UK.

All other aspects including visa issues will stay the same for students from CIS countries.

In addition, the exiting of the UK from the EU will take several years; students entering UK universities in 2016-2017 should not have any difficulties in terms of education at all.
