Moving on from yesterday's discussion panels, all students will have answers to most of their questions. The page layout follows the format like how we discussed yesterday on the type of information that builds up into asking a certain question. Answers from the panel is noted down and analysed to give our own opinion backed up by the information/ statistics we found on journals/ publication or reports.

We invited Mark Percival (architect), Graham Smith (architect), Dr Angela Connelly (academiia), Penny Christoforou (6th year student) and Aaron Underhill (5th year student) to be on our panel for our event today. It ran smoothly with complications with the microphones but overall the discussion is organic while everyone have new inputs on viewing BREXIT towards the architecture field . Discussion ranges from what would happen if the EU research funding is cut off in the academic field to how woulde BREXIT affect the chances of employment towards the EU students.

Questions are formed for the impact of BREXIT towards both architectural industry and academic fields. These are then sent to the panelist to prepare them for similar questions to be asked that day. These questions are in preparation for that day itself to ask if no one initiates.

The main thing about Day 6 is to produce posters for what we've learnt on the education and industry sector in a post-BREXIT era and paste it around the school to campaign for the discussion panel on Wednesday. Questions should be presented, filtered and discussed as a group for Wednesday as well.

Dr Angela Connelly, the last speaker of the day, came in to give her insight on the possible sustainability outcome of BREXIT towards the field of academia that she and her fellow research partners are currently in. She emphasis on the importance of European funding and knowledge network in order for research in universities in the UK to move forward. What would the future for academics be like if we lost this connection with the EU?
