An association of 20 British universities has called on the UK government to introduce "fee reciprocity" for EU students once the nation has left the European Union, much like is seen between Australia and New Zealand.
Students should "continue to benefit from world leading universities [in] UK and the EU" after Brexit, the British government said as it declared its negotiating position. But stakeholders have called for more clarity.
British universities have increased activity in Europe amid Brexit, but recruitment continues to be limited due to the UK's lack of post-study work visa according to delegates at the BUILA conference in Manchester.
Key stakeholders have welcomed the UK government's announcement that EU students attending universities in England will continue to pay domestic fees in 2019, But there has been no decision on their long-term status.
