Elite university places go to EU students

I have plagiarised most of this from the Daily Telegraph, as I am too incensed to write it own in my own words. The reason it sickens me so much is that my granddaughter is hoping to get a place a Uni next year but according to this I don't think it is going to happen.

More than 5,000 undergraduate places at twenty of the most sought-after UK institutions went to candidates from other European Union (EU) countries last year – an increase of 32 per cent in three years
EU students count towards the admissions cap imposed on universities by the Government which means they are directly competing with British students for a fixed number of places. Experts are predicting a severe shortage of university places this summer, with as many as 200,000 young people turned away.

The UK has more students from other EU countries coming here than any other country does," said Bahram Bekhradnia, director of the Higher Education Policy Institute.

"They count towards the cap and qualify for loans to cover tuition fees. However, the mechanism for getting the money back from them is much less certain.
