Erasmus, Exchange & Study Abroad

Erasmus, Exchange & Study Abroad

For students looking to undertake an Erasmus+ placement, Universities UK have made the following statement available on their website:

"Following the UK-EU phase one agreement on the 15 December, the UK will be able to participate in Erasmus+ until the end of the programme in 2020. This should allow staff and students to complete mobility periods, and receive funding, through the Erasmus+ programme until the end of the academic year 2020/21.UUK continues to highlight the benefits of the programme and will be urging the UK government to push for access onto the Erasmus+ successor programme, which will commence in 2021"

Top 7 reasons to study abroad:

1) See (more of) the world
2) Experience a different style of education/work
3) Learn about another culture
4) Learn another language (or just some new words!)
5) Enhance your career opportunities
6) Discover undiscovered talents
7) Make lifelong friends
