Brexit places the higher education industry in the UK in severe jeopardy, according to survey. Universities will struggle to attract the top international students. Lots of teachers I know will lose their jobs as a result of this, people with families, who pay taxes. Not to mention the loss of of jobs and revenue to accommodation providers, transport providers such as taxi drivers and coach companies, restaurants, tourist attractions etc. Independent language schools will no doubt suffer as well. Towns like Bournemouth, which rely on the international student business, will be worst hit. Meanwhile the international competitors for the international student market such as Australia, Canada and Malta cannot believe their luck.
