- Why do you want to study at this university? Because this university is in Russia and I approve of Putin’s actions as President.
- Why do you want to leave your current institution? Because it’s in the UK and after the Brexit referendum, I no longer feel welcome here.
Nothing special about these examples; one could equally have “I want to leave Russia because I disapprove of Putin’s actions as President” etc. I tag this with “academic life” because it could apply to any decision to move.
