Was that a serious post .......????? how many Cypriot students are there in the UK ??


In academic year 2111/12 there were 11,620 Cypriot students at UK universities. An impressive number from a small island, but in total there were 435,230 forign students, so Cypriot students were 2.67% of the total of foreign students if my sums are correct. Their withdrawal would scarcely shake the walls of academia, and would shrink to an even smaller percentage if UK nationals were taken into account.

Cypriot students represent a huge investment in the university sector (4 or 5th highest intake from EU), whose current figures are being withheld from public consumption because of the dire situation.

Warning to future students:

Demand these figures from your chosen Uni before committing, as course-closures will leave you without money and irrecoverable lost time from your studies.

Yes and British taxpayers should stop funding foreign student loans to.

GIG your desperate attempts to find anything to change the subject on what is to everyone else a very serious crisis in Cyprus basically shows how quite loopy you really are, stop showing yourself up and speak seriously or just sit on the naughty step for a while, you're despicable how you ignore your country so much especially now, get serious.

Btw I thought the Pres did an admirable job under dire circumstances I applaud how he coped under intense pressure, he's a good man IMO. I think many should feel glad he was there, even though it will take a while to sink in.

No surprises you can only post with a personal attack.

There are plenty of threads about the "so-called-concern" over Cyprus and this one has run its course, especially since there was zero evidence he actually threatened to resign.

It's a natural progression to move on to how the UK will suffer as fall-out from Cyprus, but of course, it's very British to defiantly hush-up any possible bad news for the UK in the worry over "self-fulfilling prophecies".

BTW your Daily Mail article is complete nonsense since EU students only qualify for help with Tuition fees and they were only introduced last year - so how many people have graduated from a typical 3 year university course in one year?

Would all the ex-pats leaving Cyprus have more clout than a few thousand students leaving the UK .........???

If the ex-pats could sell their houses that is .I have a feeling their imput to the smaller economy would have a larger effect...

I for one appreciate income coming to Cyprus from Brits but what I don’t appreciate is Cypriot money going down the drain for Greece!

Unless we cut off all ties with this Greek cancer we will never see the light of day in this country.

We are completely bankrupt from Greek junk bonds that TRAITORS purchased to aid shitty Greece and yet we held a Greek 1821 national holiday today!!!

What treasonous, disgusting, perverted, behavior is this???

This country deserves everything it gets and more, and I for one have had enough of these pea-brained traitors! :evil:
