A Question Time-style debate to examine the value of EU membership for UK students.

For the first time in over 40 years the British public will have their say on whether to remain in the European Union, and the votes of nearly two and a half million UK students could be decisive for the outcome.
 
To explore the value of EU membership for students, Universities UK is hosting a major event in partnership with the NUS titled ‘Should students care about the EU?’ The event will take the form of a question time style debate featuring high profile speakers, and will take place on Tuesday 8 March at The Church House , Westminster, London from 19.30-21.00

The debate is the second in a series of events hosted by Universities UK as part of the Universities for Europe campaign. The first event takes place on 29 February and will feature notable international speakers from outside the UK (the US, Ireland, Egypt and Switzerland) discussing the value of EU membership for universities, and the potential implications of the referendum for future collaboration.
