As a university student I encounter so many benefits of EU membership in my day to day life. Many of the academic staff and my peers are from elsewhere in Europe bringing diversity in culture and knowledge to the university community.

It is thanks to the EU, through schemes such as Erasmus, that my university experience and education has been enriched through being part of a community that celebrates diversity. Without the freedoms to work, travel and study that the EU offers, I fear that we will lose this sense of integration within our communities and forgo the incredible benefits it brings.
