Liberal Youth Scotland condemns Brexit government attack on students' rights

Liberal Youth Scotland has today issued a press release condemning Amber Rudd's plans to restrict international students' rights to live, work and study in the UK.

We believe Amber Rudd's plans will be harmful to the diversity of both Universities and Scotland as a whole. International student programmes and opportunities provide a wealth of investment in our local communities and promote a cultural exchange which develops all students into global citizens.

This attempt to divide young people by borders and nationalities is absolutely the wrong approach and will only seek to make Scotland an isolationist country. We should be positive and progressive.

The Liberal Democrats are the only party that young people can trust not to to put lines on a map ahead of their futures.
