The past few years have seen some significant, if radical, changes in the socio-political landscapes of several countries around the world. With Britain set to leave the European Union this month, the United Kingdom too stands at the cusp of such a change.
Very quickly, for the uninitiated, UK voted to opt out of the European Union (EU) in 2016, of which it had been a member since 1973. Brexit, as the exit is popularly called, was originally meant to come into effect in March 2019. However, that was postponed to 31st October 2019, and again to 31st January 2020. This one, however, is final.
The question to ask now is – what will be the social and political ramifications of Brexit? It’s a debate that is taking place among politicians and leaders from around the world. The topic is also of extreme relevance to students looking to study in the UK. There are uncertainties about the impact it will have on their academic aspirations.
