    Asuming this is a coursework, this will 100% depend on the choice of your teacher. You should ask him. There's nothing much the people here can do for you beyond some general listing of + and - things without further information. – Neinstein Apr 15 at 10:39

    In any case, I don't think there are any Brexit-related reasons to prefer one style or the other. – Anyon Apr 15 at 11:15

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.
