What’s Sudying?
Is it French for sun bathing
If so then why not
Much better use of their time than ‘Media studies!’

An aspect of EU membership is that university students from one member state who study in another member state can do so on the same terms as a local citizen. For example an British student studying in in Germany pays whatever fees a German student would. (Its the same principle as the EHIC card, where I am eligible for treatment in, say, Spain on the same terms as if I were a Spanish citizen).

Both of these are practical outworkings of the free movement of people in the EU. They will end when the UK leaves the EU unless there are agreements between the UK and EU for them to continue, or agreements at more local level.

I express no opinion here as to whether any of this is good or bad - we already have enough debate on the Brexit.

Not trolling and please don't say I am! I was reacting to your comment: "One of the aspects of EU membership....".

Using your logic you were trolling!?!

I mentioned some facts in as neutral a fashion as possible; you expressed an opinion.
