I will be writing an essay about Brexit and I am confused on which style of writing to use.

This question appears to be off-topic. The users who voted to close gave this specific reason:
- "The answer to this question strongly depends on individual factors such as a certain person’s preferences, a given institution’s regulations, the exact contents of your work or your personal values. Thus only someone familiar can answer this question and it cannot be generalised to apply to others. (See this discussion for more info.)" – Anyon, Peter Jansson, corey979, Jon Custer, Massimo Ortolano
Unless explicitly stated by your instructor, I believe you should be free to use any. Just for the context about what you might find in the relevant literature, the MLA is generally used in the field of arts and humanities, whereas APA is mostly used in psychology and other social science. However, they are used across the fields too.
