What does the new Brexit deal mean for University education?

The current state of the draft Brexit deal penned by Theresa May means that the United Kingdom’s terms on education will change in one form or another, come the 29th of March 2019.

At risk is the EU’s research funding worth at least £87bn, which universities in the UK are worried about losing, but it’s been said that up until 2020, absolutely nothing will change.

Christopher Farquhar, 19, a media student at London South Bank University, has expressed his doubts about Brexit. In his opinion “Brexit will most likely impact higher-education, but we’ll have to wait and see how the deal pans out, I guess”.

An interesting point he began to bring up after further conversation, detailed “that a Hard Brexit negotiation could possibly give EU students a hard time”, going on to say that “they could possibly be charged the full amount of fees that international students from countries like the USA or Canada would usually pay”.

The entire deal at the moment appears to be in a shroud of mystery, with the chances of Brexit swinging both ways. The French Prime Minister, Edouard Philippe has warned the UK to brace themselves for a ‘no-deal Brexit’, if the worst manages to happen.

The draft as a whole has garnered savoury reviews from the Cabinet and Government. Members of Parliament such as the Brexit Secretary, Dominic Raab and Work and Pensions Secretary, Esther McVey have both resigned alongside other Members of Parliament.
