Specialist student rental company Studenttenant.com has expressed concern at Prime Minister Theresa May’s announcement this week that Britain would not seek to be part of the EU Single Market when it withdraws from the community.
"There is great concern surrounding Theresa May's comments on a 'hard' Brexit and leaving the single market, which includes the free movement of people” says Danielle Cullen, managing director at Studenttenant.com.
“European students bring huge value to our economy and culture, and still no comment has been made on how they will be looked after. We sincerely hope the government reach the 'early deal' the PM proposes surrounding the rights of EU citizens living and studying in the UK" Cullen continues.
Earlier this week the Prime Minister said the UK "cannot possibly" remain within the European single market, as staying in it would mean "not leaving the EU at all".
