In 2021, we saw almost 15 percent year-on-year growth in the number of applicants from outside the E.U. However, post-Brexit, there was a significant decline in the number of students applying from the E.U. For those not familiar, the reason for that is that post-Brexit, E.U. students essentially lost their home fee status for tuition fees, so it meant the cost of going to university in the U.K. for a European student dramatically increased essentially overnight.
