Brexit is one of the most talked about topics in recent years. The UK will officially leave the EU on the 29th March 2019. There lies a lot of uncertainties and unforeseeable future for the country. It is especially interesting for the architectural sector where it heavily relies on foreign professionals. Event F provides the perfect platform for students to debate how the industry will be affected by Brexit from educational and professional point of view.
