Students welcome in the UK after the European Union vote
24 June 2016

Although the UK has voted to leave the European Union (EU), nothing has changed for students who want to come and study here.

You are still very welcome. Our schools, colleges and universities want to teach you. Our host families want you to stay. Our cafes, restaurants, museums, shops and tourist attractions all still want you to visit. The UK is still the same friendly place for students as it was last week or last year, and it will stay that way.

Although some things may change when the UK leaves the EU, nothing will happen for a very long time. It will take at least two years for the UK to leave, and there are lots of different things which might happen then.

It could be that nothing will change for English Language students. 

In many ways, international students will be even more important for the UK's economy and influence than they are now. Nobody knows what will happen yet, but there is no reason for student visas to be more restricted than they are now. Free movement across the EU might also stay the same as it is now, if the UK makes a trade deal. 

It is safe for you to book your course in the UK, and we are looking forward to welcoming you here.
