The proportion of European Union enrolling in leading varsities of Britain have fallen down by 3 percent in the academic year of 2018-2019, with brutally hitting the postgraduate research courses with the biggest drop.

According to news reports, the Russell group of twenty-four leading British varsities, which includes the London School of Economics, Oxford, Imperial College London and Cambridge, said that there was a drop by 5 percent in the numbers of EU postgraduate students, and also a drop by 9 percent in postgraduate research students.

The number were released after a broader group of the United Kingdom (UK) universities warned the sector, which contributes about $27 billion (21 billion pounds) to the economy and also supporting around 944,000 jobs, would need decades to recover the fall if Britain leaves the EU without Brexit deal in March in 2019, a deal proposed by British Prime Minister Theresa May.

In an open letter to the government and politicians, the university leaders wrote the vital research links would get compromised from a new cancer treatments in order to technologies the combating climate change.

They wrote: “The valuable exchange of students, staff and knowledge would be seriously damaged.”

It further stated: “It is no exaggeration to suggest that this would be an academic, cultural and scientific setback from which it would take decades to recover.”

Britain’s leading varsities has been always compared with the likes of MIT, Stanford and Harvard on the top lists of best study place in the world. But however, since the 2016 Brexit deal vote, the British universities have been warned that their institutions might be in danger and would suffer a major loss of the EU research funding grants with fewer EU students.
