10 November, 2017 - by Caoimhe Archibald

Sinn Féin MLA Caoimhe Archibald has welcomed the news that the Open University can resume providing educational services into Cuba.

The Party Spokesperson on Further and Higher Education said:

"The news that Open University is now able to resume educational services into countries affected by US sanctions including Cuba, is to be welcomed.

"Previously following legal advice the Open University had suspended the supply of educational services into the affected countries on an interim basis.

“However, following work with the US authorities a resolution has been achieved and the Open University is now able to resume the supply of educational services into these countries.

"Education services should be open and accessible to all, so this is a positive outcome."
