The aim of this paper is to highlight the contradiction in current education system, which is torn by two opposite political movements: on one hand there is still a strong emphasis on globalisation in Academia, but on the other hand local processes dictate the opposing vector of development of education, nationalists movements across Europe and Brexit (the decision to leave EU) in the UK in particular. Such contradiction creates tension within society and hence it might impact the experiences of international students, who come to study to the UK. Author suggests to empower student's voice by capturing their experiences through video recordings and will offer analysis of international students' experience prior and after Brexit procedures to highlight if these processes had any impact on students' experience so far. The results of two consultations with international students will be presented in the paper and at the Congress.
