FAA to EASA conversion, shine some light on this

set me straight.

I'm originally from England, Wales. Finished my degree in piloting and engineering in London and traveled to Michigan (USA) to get my FAA license (cheaper alternative), where I earned 1300 hours, CFII, MEII proficiency.

I've moved back to England, hoping to convert my licence to EASA and fly for commercial airline in UK. However I'm not positive on how to proceed with this decision, what exams to take as well as the cost?; Another complication I came across is UK existing EU (Brexit), where new topic has emerged of maybe scrapping EASA licence all together by the end of 2020, meaning what licence and procedures will take charge? Or should I try my luck with FAA licence in another country (US, already applies for air Wisconsin), if so what country would take me on especially with covid-19 at full swing at the moment?

What are my options?

Greatly appreciate any feedback

You would need to take all the exams - through an ATO for the theoretical knowledge. In the UK they cost 68 or 69 for each one. provided the training is done in the UK before 31st december, you can then take the exams anywhere else. Or you can take them all in the UK by then.
