Why you are #ProEU…

The EU debate has been a fascinating one and it has been quite the journey talking to students about their views on the European Union. We have had panels both here on campus and in the city; with lecturers, students, residents and celebrities alike! The debate is getting heated and shows no sign of cooling down… As part of our efforts to talk to you and find out more about your opinions on the matter, , we visited Avenue, WSA and SGH as well as Highfield to talk to you about the situation.

Join the conversation on Twitter at #EURef, #ProEU and #BritaIN. Remember you have until Tuesday 7th June to register to vote in the EU Referendum! It’s super important you cast your vote as voters under 25 make up around 43% of total votes in the country!! Make sure you have your say in your future!

Have a great week and as always let me know if you have any questions!!

    Hi Rob,

    I am. As a Students’ Union we were able to take a stance on this matter – in this instance Remain – so we have been conducting our campaign accordingly.

    We are facilitating any Leave campaigns that students want to run.
