Universities reel after Hexit vote
The referendum result shocked the universities, going against all the expectations that Remain would triumph and that the status quo would be preserved. The campaign had become increasingly frenetic as the date for the referendum approached, with claims about the consequences for Leave and Remain ever more inflated.
But even on the day of the vote no-one, least of all the opinion pollsters, had really expected that Leave would win. It was only as voters left polling stations across the country's campuses that the realisation dawned, with exit polls immediately showing unexpectedly high votes for Leave, especially in crucial constituencies like Sheffield. As the results came in it was clear that Sunderland, one of the earliest to report a Leave majority, had established a pattern that would be replicated everywhere except in parts of London and a few other cities.
