Many UK universities may go bankrupt
The BBC report claimed that Britain has a difficult task in controlling the number of migrants by limiting the number of foreign students. Talking to the news agency, a government advisor said that such a decision would bankrupt the universities. Explaining the reason for this, the advisor said that British universities teach British students at low fees and compensate their money with students from other countries. If there is any obstruction in the arrival of foreign students, then the risk of bankruptcy of some universities will increase.
