‘Brexit will affect our universities’ – Murphy

Sinn Féin MLA Conor Murphy has expressed concern about how the uncertainty around Brexit will affect our universities.

Sinn Fein MP Conor Murphy“EU nationals make up more than 20% of academic staff in our universities and they are uncertain about their status in the wake of the EU referendum,” the Newry representative said.

“This uncertainty also impacts on potential recruitment of academic staff for the universities.

“Potential recruits are concerned because they are unsure of how they will be treated if the British government invokes Article 50 of the Lisbon Treaty.

“Ending this uncertainty must be a priority for all concerned.
