    I have been living in the UK for over 9 years now, I have moved from *insert Eastern European country here* in 2007. I have completed both primary and secondary education here and I am currently at sixth form. I was 99% sure that Britain would vote remain and what actually happened shocked me a bit, increasing racism and the chance of recession are on my mind but the most important thing bothering me is my future education. I want to go to university after my A-levels and that has been my goal every since I started year 12, my brother is at uni now and he receives all loans plus student bursaries as an international student and I'm extremely worried that after Brexit it will be made much more difficult for me to obtain the loans needed to move onto further education. What do you think will happen? Will the government refuse student loans and bursaries for those born outside Britain- if they do I am f***** because my parents will not be able to give me the money to support myself and I can't get a British citizenship because of the same reason- lack of money. I'm scared because the leave vote possibly just shut all the uni doors for me. What do you think will happen?

    Can't say for sure but I wouldn't worry *too* much yet. We haven't left the EU yet and it could take us two years - as you are at 6th form now and presumably moving straight on to university next year it is likely that changes will not have happened yet.
