SFC statement on the EU referendum
24 Jun 2016
SFC will be working with the Scottish Government, colleges and universities to assess the impact of the outcome of the referendum and to manage any impact. Our priority will be the interests of the students in our colleges and universities, both from Scotland and from the rest of the European Union.
Many students in Scotland’s universities are from other parts of the European Union and European funds support activity in colleges and research in our universities. There are other, less direct impacts.
We will work with Government and the sectors to reduce uncertainty for our students and institutions in both the short term and the longer term.
