The number of students enrolled in English language universities from EU countries is falling
Now comes the worst for Britain, which is grappling with the fallout from Brexit. The combination of the pandemic and the return of many foreign workers to their home countries has taken the productive fabric by surprise.
In the UK, there is a shortage of food in supermarkets and fast food restaurants (the so-called “pingdemic”), while pubs risk running out of beer due to a shortage of heavy-vehicle drivers for transport. Even large global companies like Ikea face many obstacles in bringing stock to their stores. So much so, according to some analysts, that a shortage of labor could drive up consumer prices in the food sector.
Summary of the state of the British economy was written by Ian King, a journalist for Sky News, who in 17 seconds managed to photograph the main issues, to which we must also add the flight from British universities. The number of students enrolled in British universities from EU countries has fallen from 27,750 last year to 11,700 for the 2021-2022 academic year: the divorce between London and Brussels, Britain’s exit from the European Union, has made studying abroad very expensive.
