University courses ‘may become unviable’ after Brexit

Agriculture is among the postgraduate courses facing the axe at Scottish universities as a result of Brexit, principals have warned.

Data from the Higher Education Statistics Agency shows key courses at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels may no longer be viable if numbers of EU students dry up.

Unless universities can find students from elsewhere to plug any gaps then subject choice is likely to suffer for all students.

At postgraduate level, there are 20 subjects where EU students make up more than a third of all students.

Subjects include business, some agriculture, physics, languages and creative arts.
