Brexit & the latest election results makes Britain an unnerving host for prospect postgraduate students!
Brexit headlines have dominated the news headlines since its announcement with speculation over implications that may occur across topics from the future political landscape, economic implications and healthcare concerns to education but the only real certainty is that changes will occur. On Friday 9th of June, The Irish Times wrote an article with the headline “Irish students in the UK could face hike in fees after Brexit vote”. Fianna Fails education spokesperson has said students had no immediate reason to be fearful about their university courses or their “EU student” status for at least a year” but there was uncertainty beyond this point. However, going forward, “The result of the Brexit vote and the proposed move by Britain to leave the EU could see EU students having to pay very costly non-EU fees to study in Britain and Northern Ireland,” Mr Byrne said. Much now depends on the negotiations around Britain’s exit from the EU.
The Prime Minister of the UK called a snap election with the notion of strengthening her parliamentary majority which would lead to her having more power and freedom to negotiate Britain’s exit from the European Union. Last night, the opposite outcome arose with a hung parliament. According to Guntram Wolff, director of the Brussels-based Bruegel think tank stated it will make negotiations “more complicated” “It may be impossible to compromise due to domestic policital pressures in the UK” he told CNBC “So a no-deal scenario may become more likely” Meanwhile, John Hardy, head of forex strategy at Saxo Bank, told CNBC via email that the outcome of the British vote will have little impact on Brexit, given that the European Union will not change its stance on the negotiations. “I think the EU’s stance will be little affected by the outcome of the election unless there is a sense that Brexit can somehow be re-engineered into an eventual Bremain referendum,” he said.
While all this uncertainty is flying around the current climate, the UK’s stance as a host for the current 5.5% of the total European student population currently studying in the UK (excluding UK residents) is unnerving for potential future students. Boasting a combination of a well-connected international airport and being Europes only English speaking country in the Eurozone, Ireland has all the hallmarks of a perfect destination. Whilst, DCU Business School, one of Ireland’s most dynamic young business schools, accredited by AACSB, placing it among the top 5% of business schools worldwide is situated in one of Irelands most vibrant & welcoming cities, Dublin. DCU Business School is truly alive with ambition.
