Newry and Armagh Sinn Féin MLA Megan Fearon has said that Brexit will bring nothing but negativity for students and young people and she has urged all young people and students to ensure their voices are heard as the Brexit process reaches a critical phase.

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.

 

 

“At a recent meeting with Sinn Féin Further and Higher Education spokesperson my colleague Caoimhe Archibald, the President of NUS-USI, Olivia Potter-Hughes, 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.”

 

 

The Sinn Féin MLA added, “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.

“We would encourage all young people and students to ensure their voices are heard as the Brexit process reaches a critical phase.”
