Brexit and Education

Brexit and Education

The decision to leave the European Union will have a range of consequences for the UK’s education system, from schools to universities. Programmes such as Erasmus have given UK students the opportunity to pursue studies within the EU, and vice versa, and the ease in travelling across borders has enabled many EU students and academics to take up positions in UK universities, contributing to the local economy.

Whilst it is expected there will be no major restrictions imposed upon academic travel and student visas once Britain has left the EU, the UK’s future participation in projects such as Erasmus still seems uncertain.

At the moment there are over 120,000 EU students across the UK, equating to more than 6% of all full-time students in Britain’s universities. [Source: BBC Active]
