10 August, 2016
Sixty-one percent of surveyed students suggest that their interest to study in the United Kingdom is because of the current weak value of the Pound. Some 43 prospective international students opined that their decision to study in the UK was affected post the popular mandate of ‘Brexit.'
According to the survey conducted by Hobsons, some 83 percent of students said that after the results of ‘Brexit’ were announced, the United Kingdom seems less likely for them.
The study was based on 1014 prospective students who enquired with UK Universities for higher education. Among them, 87 percent were from the non-EU nations. The UK universities consider international students as a strategic opportunity.
Jeremy Cooper, managing director of Hobsons EMEA, has stated that Market circumstances for international students seem to be tough, and universities must disseminate information that UK Universities are more welcoming and provide practical guidance to students.
