    Brexit may spark problems for Universities, already Cambridge has seen a 14% drop in applicants abroad although some might suggest it is also down to tuition fees being raised.

    Isn't that good for us though, less foreign people to compete with?

    Stop fear-mongering. We will make a success of Brexit. Since when did the UK have to rely on a globalist authority?

      Wrong; it has seen a 14% drop in applications from Europe, not overall

      Universities (and research) are going to be one of the worst hit sectors by Brexit, it's extremely upsetting. Oxford has now created a new position of Head of Brexit Strategy - taken up by the dean of the Oxford Medical School - which shows how seriously concerned they are by this.

      Well... British students already enter British universities... why is it a problem if foreign students do too? The competition for international students is tougher anyway (I say that, I may be wrong for some/many courses), so if they get a place at a uni over here then I think we can be sure that they've earned it.
      Sure, the larger amount of fees that international students pay is something which universities will be concerned with, but I think a lot of unis will also be concerned with losing out on some really really good applicants because of this.

      This is a silly reason, its hypocritical for people like you to want to run off to foreign unis but then want to close up our unis and keep it exclusively to british people.

      To be fair, that was a legitimate issue because there were people running software made by people who were stupid enough to allow such trivial rollover error to exist even if it did mean fewer resources were needed, and the Gregorian calendar was often straight up done wrong. We all think it was people going crazy over nothing, it wasn't nothing. Not much ended up going wrong in the end but that does not mean it wasn't a big deal and didn't need the massive spend to fix before it became a problem.
