‘Should students care about the EU?’ - watch our live debate tonight

Tuesday 08-03-2016 - 13:41

Millions of students in the UK could play a decisive role in the upcoming EU referendum, but do you know enough about how either outcome could affect students? Stream our debate live tonight (8 March, from 7.45pm) exploring what a ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ vote could mean for students.

On Thursday 23 June, we’ll all have the opportunity to have a say on whether we should remain in the European Union for the first time in more than 40 years.

Students in the UK could play a decisive role in the EU referendum which is why, in partnership with Universities UK, we’re organising a major national debate titled ‘Should students care about the EU?’ to explore the crucial issues for students.

Confirmed panellists include:

  • Megan Dunn, NUS National President; board member, Britain Stronger In
  • Thomas Collins, UKIP Students Officer
  • Caroline Lucas, Green Party MP; board member, Britain Stronger In
  • Owen Paterson, Conservative MP; former Cabinet Minister (2010-2014); Vote Leave Parliamentary Planning Committee

How can I follow the debate?

The debate takes place Westminster tonight (Tuesday 8 March) between 7.45pm and 9.00pm, and you’ll be able to follow it live here:  

The debate is part of a series of events hosted by Universities UKs wider Universities for Europe campaign which aims to highlight the value of the UKs membership of the EU to our universities – and why this matters to the British public, economy and society.
