Students gathered at Church House Westminster on 8 March to debate what Europe means to UK universities.
The event Should Students Care About the EU? was organised to explore the value of EU membership for students and involved speakers from both sides of the debate including Thomas Collins, UKIP Students Officer; Megan Dunn, President of NUS and board member Britain Stronger In; Caroline Lucas MP, Green Party and board member Britain Stronger In; Owen Paterson MP, Conservative and Vote Leave Parliamentary Planning Committee.
This event was part of a series hosted by Universities UK as part of the Universities for Europe campaign, which aims to highlight the value of the UK’s membership of the EU to our universities, and why this matters to the British public, economy and society.
Robin Parker, our General Manager commented; “The turnout for this debate shows the strength and depth of feeling amongst students about the future of our participation in the EU. This generation will have an impact on the outcome of the referendum so it was great to see so many students attending the debate to help them make an informed decision.”
