BREXIT and International Education

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

What will be the effect of BREXIT on UK education and how much is likely to change? Britain's decision to exit the European Union immediately sent key economic and social programs into disarray. For younger generations of British youth who have never known life outside the EU, and for both those studying abroad and for EU students in the UK.

There is valid concern that BREXIT could cause a significant reduction in the numbers of students from across Europe and from around the world who choose to study in the UK, as international tuition fees may rise and all may encounter a more complex visa regime. Hear from three British experts on the issue of BREXIT and International Education.

The content of this session is applicable to K-12, PSE and Language.
