The employment landscape for international students is now more challenging because of the political changes surrounding the UK. A hot topic of discourse among international students is the Brexit.
On June 23rd, 2016, the UK voted to leave the EU. Brexit, or British Exit, is a way of describing the UK leaving the European Union. With leave and remain campaign promises on both sides, there has been a lot of uncertainty on how this decision will impact the UK economy. For international students, these are some of the frequently asked questions:
- How will the Brexit impact students coming to study in the UK?
- What does this imply about employment chances of international students in the UK?
- Will there be any visa or immigration changes following this?
CIUK examines these questions and provides clarity for international students during this time of uncertainty.
