The MLA warned “Brexit will be nothing but negative for students and young people, limiting their opportunities and creating barriers where currently there are none”

Ms Fearon pointed out that the President of NUS-USI, Olivia Potter-Hughes has outlined the very real concerns of the students she represents: the loss of the right to work and study in other EU states, the ability to access EU programmes including Erasmus Plus and student fee costs.

Thousands of young people have benefited from opportunities through Erasmus and Erasmus Plus since its introduction”

Concluding the MLA said “Sinn Féin has consistently highlighted that access to this and other EU programmes must continue. We will continue to campaign for this regardless of the Brexit outcome."
