Erasmus funding update as of 19/07/19

Funding for the 19/20 academic period has been confirmed.

Brexit update as of 01/05/2019

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.

Previous Updates can be found on the Erasmus+ and Brexit webpage

Planning an Erasmus placement in 2020/21

Funding for students wishing to undertake study/work placements in Europe in 2020/21 is dependent on Brexit negotiations. We remain hopeful that the UK is able to participate in the Erasmus Programme in 2020/2021. However, this remains unclear. The University will continue to work with Universities UK to lobby for a replacement international student mobility programme, however, Durham University students should be aware that there is no guarantee of Erasmus funding for 2020/21 placements and beyond at the moment.
