Universities prepare for post-Brexit student influx

A new study suggests that universities on the Continent are increasing their offers as they expect students to look outside of the United Kingdom for courses in the years after Brexit, writes Eleanor Busby for the Independent.

The total number of English-taught programmes in universities on the Continent has risen by 13% in the last year, according to analysis shared with the Independent. The number could accelerate further as institutions prepare for an increased demand from international students following Brexit. Universities in Poland, for example, have doubled the number of English-speaking courses over three years – and now the country has been deemed to be one of the best places for international students to study.

Analysis from Study.EU, an information provider for student choice, has ranked the United Kingdom as the second most desirable destination for international students – just behind Germany. But Brexit could make the UK, with its high tuition fees and high living costs, a less desirable place to study in years to come, Gerrit Bruno Blöss, chief executive of Study.EU, has warned.
