Since Brexit, the number of US students applying for studies at UK universities has increased by over 50%.
Between 2020 and 2021, the number of EU students coming to the UK fell by 40%.
According to UCAS, the surge represents the “highest proportional increase in applicants of any significant nation.”
According to one American University of Bristol student, studying at a similarly respected American university would cost “far more.”
This trend, according to a company that assists US students with visas, could help mitigate some of the institutions’ losses as a result of Brexit.
Particularly in the South West.
Students from other EU countries only had to pay up to £9,250 per year when the UK was a member.
Previously, students from other EU nations were only required to pay up to £9,250 per year, the same as British citizens.
This was when the United Kingdom was a member of the European Union,
Universities have set tuition prices since August 2021, with some charging as high as £40,000 per year.
Kareem Dus is the founder of Favisbook, a company that annually assists roughly 3,000 American students in obtaining visas to study abroad.
Since the UK officially left the EU in 2020, he said, the number of US students using the company’s services to study in the UK has increased by roughly 39%.
Mr. Dus feels that the UK’s moved away from Brussels since Brexit.
Might as well as the lower cost in contrast to US fees, has contributed to the reduced cost.
Its seeming shift toward America, in the opinion of many, is making it more appealing to students from the United States.
And, as the population grows, more people will attend universities.
Such as the University of Bristol, Bath Spa University, and the University of the West of England, he predicts.
He went on to say, “This is a rising market for us.”
“We’ve noticed an upsurge in orders for UK visas coming in from the United States.
“Bristol is an excellent example of a successful university. It is well-known on a global scale and has a prestigious research reputation among academics.
"With its architecture, it's also a lovely portion of the UK, which is always a great draw." The United States experienced the highest proportional growth in applicants of any major country.
