Erasmus+ Update

The University is committed to student mobility in Europe. Brexit has created some uncertainty regarding its implications for Erasmus+ student mobility. Erasmus + funding will be available for as a long as the UK remains part of the Erasmus+ programme and there is a commitment to cover successful applications for the 2018/19 academic year. It is not yet clear whether UK institutions will be able to participate in the Erasmus+ programme in 2019-2020. While we hope that there will be ongoing involvement in the programme, this will depend on negotiations at a national level and we cannot guarantee that Erasmus + grant funding will be available.

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and uncertainty around the future situation in various overseas locations, the University does not currently intend to offer any study abroad / mobility programmes in academic year 2020/21.  The situation will be kept under review.
