70% of students want to leave UK, survey shows
Share This Article:
Seven out of ten British students are considering a future away from the UK, with the weather, quality of life, and the current government being the leading factors, shows a recent survey. The survey—carried out in the wake of last month’s budget announcement— asked 16-21 year-olds from around the UK how they felt about life and their future prospects. More than half of these unhappy young people wished for a better quality of life. When asked for specific reasons, more than 20% blamed the economy and over 30% said they were unhappy with the current government, as young people become increasingly disillusioned with David Cameron and the Conservatives. Many responses were unforgiving of life in the UK, with one respondent claiming “British people don't appreciate anything” and another saying “Its grey dull and miserable and people spend more time looking at screens than each other in the eye.” The survey – carried out by Robinsons Relocation – showed that one third of those that wanted to leave agreed that life in the UK was too expensive and that they would like to live somewhere cheaper, whilst one in five would like their family to have a better future than that which is available in the UK.
