Erasmus, Exchange & Study Abroad
Brexit update as of 01/05/2019
Students on an Erasmus placement in 2018/19
For 2018/19 mobilities, funding for these mobilities will continue as normal although there may be less flexibility in funding additional months that have not already been applied for. Students currently abroad should be aware of the updates in their host country relating to visas, health requirements and any other day to day arrangements.
Planning an Erasmus placement in 2019/20
Bilateral agreements are being put in place to allow European mobilities to go ahead as planned.The situation around Erasmus+ funding remains unclear but the most recent extension to Article 50 means we are optimistic that funding will be available for 2019/20.
However even with an extension, if there is a No Deal, both Erasmus+ and UK Government underwrite funding may not be available for 19-20 placements. If you have applied for an Erasmus placement for 19/20, we would advise you to continue with this process. The University is monitoring this continually changing situation and we will keep students updated as we know more.
