Sheffield gains most from overseas students.

Recommended Posts

Sheffield is the biggest beneficiary from overseas students in proportion to its economy.

Sheffield Central constituency benefits most in the country at £226 million.

Apologies for mispelling 'overseas' in the title.

Too bad the referendum and the government's handling of it frightened them off, and the government is busy adding insult to injury.

 

In that context, Sheffield's pro-Brexit overall vote reminds me of all these Sunderland car makers, Grimsby fishmongers, <etc.> voting for Brexit :twisted:

Look who essentially voted for Brexit - the elderly and those without academic qualifications - a bitter cocktail of xenophobia and envy with mind-blowing stupidity thrown in for good measure.

For your reading pleasure, and very topical: Sheffield's referendum results explain why Britain voted for Brexit (2016 article, "Sheffield graduate population vs wider region working class population") :) Edited by L00b

That's not true actually.

 

EU students pay UK-level fees. Non-EU students pay much more. As numbers are capped, the more non-EU students universities get at the expense of EU ones, the more money they get. It's why all the foreign students here are already mostly Chinese, Malaysian and American. EU students are poor value, so for a good decade or so there's been disincentives against trying to recruit them.

 

The more places freed up for RoW students, the more money comes into the city

But as this is about Sheffield Universities students this bit needs pointing out:

 

"The University of Sheffield – a member of the Russell Group – said it has managed to buck the post-Brexit trend in recruiting EU students. It expects to see an increase in applications from the EU, after putting in extra effort through the networks it has built up around Europe."

Numbers haven't been capped since 2015, and the pre-referendum trend (as mentioned in the article, and independently quoted by apelike above) was one of year-on-year increase, notwithstanding any such 'disincentives'.

Trust you to try and refocus on the front tree, instead of the background forest :D

 

Must have been the 'Brexit' mention, that thread has gone very quiet.

 

PS: How did Phil and David's most excellent adventure in Germany go, yesterday? ;)

And Brexit areas will pay dearly for this. No more investment from Europe and ever-deeper cuts to pay the massive bill for Brexit - and it won't just be the £40 billion so far - that is only the first downpayment. Subsequent downpayments will take that towards £200 billion - to be paid by today's youngsters over a number of years. On top of that, there is Brexit shaving 1% off the growth figures over the next six or so years.

Wow! I have purposely not read any of your posts for awhile due to your bitter recriminations.

It would seem you are still carrying a hatred for the majority of the voting members of the UK.

Pherhaps a little holiday from Social media in a secluded room may help.

Sheffield has an arms-length campus at Thessaloniki (http://citycollege.sheffield.eu). That PR spin just means that that's growing within Greece.

 

There are a few Irish students around, but has anyone come across any German, French, Italian, Dutch, Spanish etc. students in the last 10-15 years? Compared to the hundreds and hundreds of Chinese, Malaysian, Indian and Americans you meet everywhere.

That could possibly be due to the cost of fees. Out of the ones you mention they all have much lower fees with the exception of the Dutch which is relatively high. The UK also has higher fees so will attract those that are willing to pay.

Not surprising as all the doom and gloom merchants have nothing to moan about.;)
