As all the media publicity starts to die away after the recent thwarted terror attacks in London, and the attack that took place in Scotland, I wanted to touch on the subject of how this will affect international education and students going to the UK to study.
From our recent newsletter that we sent out, we have highlighted a story showing a school in the USA who are still planning to partake in their study abroad programs to the UK, however I am sure there are probably just as many people that are looking and willing to cancel their travel arrangements.
We all know that the only way to combat terrorism is to stand up to them, and not let them affect our daily life – and the reasons we have terrorism are too deep to talk about in this posting. But I would be interested to hear from international students around the world and your thoughts on how the terror attacks are changing things for them. Are you planning to keep away from the UK as it has been hit twice in as many years, are you not bothered and still want to study there.
I would also like to hear from any study abroad or international education specialists who may read this blog – what do you think about the attacks? Has it changed anything?
Please post your comments…..
