    If for example Brexit were to prevail, can anyone hypothesize as to whether it will be harder to get in/more expensive/harder to obtain a scholarship for applicants from european countries?

    I dont think your sentence makes sense. Are you asking if Brexit happened, then would it be harder for EU students to obtain funding for UK unis or in this case Warwick? If Brexit happened no current students would be prejudiced, beither would any who are students during exit negotiations. Exit negotiations could take 2-3+ years They will put something in place after that, whih might be on a bilateral basis i.e between two countries.

    The problem with making things difficult for foreign students is that the other EU country will make it difficult in kind for UK students. I dont see things being ade more difficult and any changes will be years away.

    At the moment its likely to be a remain result, although I dont think people in the EU realise how unhappy many from the UK are.

    Many universities (not Warwick) charge less tuition fees for UK/EU students compared to international students. As far as scholarships are concerned, WBS website states: "All suitable applicants to the MSc, and in particular those from the UK and Europe, will be considered for these scholarships at the time they apply".

    I assumed that a probable Brexit might jeopardize these benefits that EU students have even if the actual Brexit takes place years from now. Judging by your answer, I am guessing you believe that changes will not occur.

    As a side note, may I ask why british people feel unhappy about the EU in general, compared to other EU countries? I am genuinely curious. I also found out that according to recent polls, the majority of the younger people tend to favour the Remain party, where as older individuals prefer Brexit. I also find this interesting.

    Anyway thanks for your input!!

    Is it specifically about the scholarships you want to know?
    1. I dont think much will change for existing students or those who start their course in the next three years.
    2. How students are then treated will depend what is included in the exit agreement. We dont know exactly, but its in the UKs bests interests to keep ties with its closest allies and trading partners and that will mean recriprocal arrangements for students between the two countries. There may be scope once outside the EU to being less generous to some countries where there is an imbalance of students and funding i,e countries which receive few UK students, but send plenty to the Uk to be funded by the UK.
    3. In turn that might change the nature of some of the scholarships favouring certain countries rather than being open to EU students as a whole, but that is up to the University. If the UK has a bilateral agreement, then I expect nothing to change. Students where there is no agreement could be treated as International students and face higher fees, but that is speculation.
    4. Based on current opinion polls Brexit is not probable, although events could change things. It is all speculation and as you cnat control the events then if you are concerned about being affected, then best wait and see if it happens.

    Island nation used to independence.and deciding its own destiny.
    Does not like having to cede power to the unelected EU bureaucrats,
    Prefers directly elected legislators.
    Believe the EU is wasteful.
    Believe the UK is sidelined and its mostly about an alliance between Germany and France.
    Only interested in trade and against a socialist United States of Europe.
    Bored of subsidising other countries with billions of £ that could be spent in the UK.
    Bored of not being able to control immigration, when they believe the country is overcrowded, people come for benefits only and they take up resources.

    These are just some of the reasons.

    I can only hope that what you say about the scholarship scheme not changing for a couple of years will ultimately come true :^_^:
    Appreciate the lengthy and detailed answer!!
