To stay or not to stay is the questions on many people’s minds in the UK at present with the EU referendum just around the corner. Vice-chancellors and education professionals have spoken out about their concerns of the effect of leaving the EU would have on universities in particular. If we left the EU then any student wishing to study at a UK uni would be forced to pay higher tuition fees such that overseas students have to pay, meaning it simply may not be an option for many.
Also we could lose access to research funding provided by the European Union, and would also make it harder for academics to work together on any international projects.
There are of course arguments for leaving the EU, which state that we would have more money to invest in to our education system and the truth is no one really knows exactly the effect the outcome will have either way.
