OK, Brexit is not my favourite topic for debate. My question relates to new students, who are European, and may have concerns about exactly what their status will be, once all the shouting is over. Usually, I ask for a month in advance and a deposit. For some, this could prove problematic, if they are uncertain of staying. I do not, under any circumstances, want to upset prospective students by suggesting that some idiot will boot them out of the country. Equally, I do not want anyone to feel that me asking for a deposit payment is going to disadvantage them. How the heck do I phrase this in emails professionally, and diplomatically. I DO NOT CARE ABOUT THE POLITICS!!!!. I just want to be fair and reasonable to new students.
PS: I apologise for bringing that horrible Brexit thingummy to the forum! It's just I have a lot of European students, and I want to be sensitive but fair.
