    So, my cousin from Hong Kong came over because my dad has to keep up his "appearances" so he though yea we can house my cousin here and he bought an extra bed and basically redid another room for me just so she could move in(she took my brothers bedroom my brother took mine and i had a new one for me).

    Now that my cousins parents(my dads brother) decided they don't wanna keep their daughter to study in the UK anymore they're taking her back so my dad basically wasted a bunch of money for almost nothing, she stayed here for like 7 months.....

    Why not accept foreign students then? You can make the money back like that.

    yes does that make a difference? i'm not well informed of the situation(although i do know at the very least Brexit has happened, it's everywhere) i'm not aware of the reasons why we left or advantages or disadvantages etc

    On the plus side, you've probably added value to your home with an extra bedroom.
