    Hey everyone,

    so after looking into the Brexit issue in-depth and how it may affect us EU university applicants I am starting to doubt my decision to study in the UK.
    Maybe I'm overreacting, but for the last five years I have been planning everything around studying, and likely remaining, in the UK and the sudden uncertainty of it all is honestly heartbreaking.
    We have to accept a uni spot before the referendum, so we will have no chance to await the outcome and then decide.

    Does anyone share my worries? Are you rethinking your UK uni plans?

    I am British but grew up in Vienna. Actually i was born there too. My whole English family lives in Vienna still.

    If Britain leaves the EU, our entire future is uncertain, not just university plans lol. So you might think that i am pro EU.

    But actually, i want Britain to leave, i really think it is what is best for the British people. They have never really been part of a political Europe and have a more independent history. So maybe i will be forced to leave the only home i know, or get a VISA, lol.

    But i still think its the right thing. I am sure however that your university plans will not be significantly affected as Britain loves students and will prob keep current agreements on EU students. You may just need a VISA like me

    Hope that makes you feel better.

    Brexit would indeed be a disaster for higher education

    . As far as I know the tuition fees are fixed for the next year and won't change so I think the worst case scenario is that we will drop out after the first year and transfer to second year at a university elsewhere in the EU or in home country.

    Honestly its not heartbrealing and you are working yourself into a tizz over nothing.
    Yes you are overreacting.

    You can accept one after the referendum if you wish, but there will be transitional arrangements.

    1. Imo if you accept one before it will make no difference.

    2. If you accept one during the transitional arrangements, there will be no difference, because the UK government isnt going to dump on you when it also has students abroad.

    3. If you accept one after the negotiations, then its more likely there will be bilateral arrangements between the UK and your home country, although I suspect its more likely with richer nations.

    4. At the moment I dont think we will exit. that's just my opinion of which way U think its going for now.

    So no I wouldnt be rethinking my plans, but if you wnat to believe the sky is going to fall in, thats your choice.
