14 September, 2015 - by Maeve McLaughlin

Sinn Féin MLA Maeve McLaughlin is due to meet new vice chancellor of the Ulster University to discuss the expansion of Magee university. 

Ms McLaughlin said; 

"The expansion of the university at Magee is vital to the regeneration of Derry and the wider north west. 

"There has been growing concern throughout the north west about the expansion.

"I requested a meeting with the new vice-chancellor of the Ulster University, professor Paddy Nixon, to discuss our concerns and reiterate the need for action. 

"I will now be meeting Professor Nixon later this month to discuss the current state of the business case for the expansion. 

"We need to see a united voice coming from Derry and the wider north west to keep the pressure on for the expansion of Magee to go ahead as soon as possible."
