Overseas students are welcome

The political storm in the UK has led to a lot of doom and gloom in many areas, not least the situation for international students. This has been a characteristic of the Teresa May years both as Home Secretary and PM. But I encourage everyone to keep some perspective and recognize the UK as the world class educational destination it is. Remember, those working in education want and welcome overseas talent and you will be able to gain places and enjoy a successful academic time there. Not only that, you can start and build a career there as well. This Guardian article highlights the massive financial contribution of international students to the UK economy – no government is going to throw that away! Also, note that most of the upset centres around immediate unknowns for EU-passport-holding students. Those from other countries have no change in their situation.
