How the EU and Brexit Is Changing Education

It's been one and a half years since Brexit was confirmed by the British vote, but only now are we really seeing the true colours of the bill. While Brexit is predicted to cause a stir in many industries, including trade and even flight, there are now apparent effects on the education system, although these appear both positive and negative. For students, university and further education can be stressful enough without the uncertainty that Brexit brings, particularly with international students who may be looking to buy essay services as well as following a strict budget. Regardless, 52% of the British nation decided on Brexit, and for many, there is excitement in the air about the new form of British independence that may come from this. Therefore, it's only wise that we learn about these changes and embrace them.

Recruiting And Retaining Teachers

Without teachers, education would be non-existent, and we are currently unsure about whether Brexit will improve this or not. Already, there are huge shortages of teachers in specific subject areas, such as engineering and maths, and while both of these subjects can build crucial foundations for work in construction or accounting (both of which we could benefit from having more of), there's a current risk that a new migration system for these EU workers could continue deteriorating the teaching workforce. Now that Brexit is underway, teachers who originate from other EU27 countries who've migrated to the UK may have a slightly harder decision to make.

Tuition Fees In European Universities

Currently, British students are able to pay the exact same fees as those paid by other EU students, but this is only in place until the UK officially leaves the EU. Once Brexit has been completed, we are still unsure about the full effects on tuition fees in universities abroad in other EU countries – especially if the UK leaves the EEA. There is always a light at the end of the tunnel though, as other universities will not be as heavily affected by Brexit – Germany for example, are unlikely to raise tuition fees for their universities.

The Erasmus+ Programme

The Erasmus+ programme has proved heavily beneficial for students across the nation, as this programme modernising our education system, training and youth work, allowing students not only to develop their skills, but also to understand different societies. This programme can improve student retention, and the final outcomes that students receive after being a part of the Erasmus+ programme. Placements within social care or childcare have been essential recently, and this programme has allowed youths to kindle a career in such areas. The most important thing to remember though, is how there is no Erasmus+ equivalent anywhere else, apart from in non-EU states, so it's essential that it stands strong. Considering that it's operating well in these separate non-EU states, it would only be appropriate for the government to continue with the scheme regardless of Brexit negotiations.

Benefits For International Students

Although the confusion around needing a VISA to study abroad once Brexit has been completed is still a little hazy and unconfirmed, international students could benefit greatly from the UK leaving the EU thanks to the new points-based-system. This is because the PBS will make access to British universities much easier for Europeans, which opens exciting prospects for cultural understanding and international collaboration.

Education is every child's foundation to life in the working world, so it's essential that it's accessible for everyone. As the effects of Brexit become clearer, educational systems could face quite the transformation, but we can only hope that the eventual outcome for students, British and international, is a positive one.
