    The number of students from the European Union applying for competitive university courses in the United Kingdom has dropped by 9 percent this year in the wake of the Brexit vote, local media reported Thursday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) – According to The Guardian newspaper citing UCAS, a service which operates the application process, the data applies for courses with an early application deadline, such as medicine, dentistry and veterinary, as well as those in Oxford and Cambridge universities.

    The 9-percent drop reverses the trend of previous years, which have seen increases in the numbers of EU students applying to study in universities in the United Kingdom.

    On June 23, the United Kingdom voted in a referendum to leave the European Union. On October 2, UK Prime Minister Theresa May said that the country would trigger Article 50 of the EU Lisbon Treaty by the end of March 2017 to start the official procedures to terminate its EU membership.
