As I write this the votes have been counted and the internet is abuzz with reactions to the EU Referendum. Now that the UK’s exit from the EU is inevitable, the Education Sector has to ask itself: where do we go from here?

The result may not be what London voted for, but the capital has been outvoted by its country. Linking London has collated the reactions of partner institutions, the educational press, and other significant sector institutions, so that readers can follow the ongoing HE and FE discussion, as we all forge a path forward in the wake of the result.
