The UK's European university

Erasmus+ programme

For the academic year 2019/20 and beyond, the precise position of the UK within Erasmus+ in a “no-deal” scenario is still to emerge. However, the UK Government has made it clear that it values international exchanges and collaboration in education and training.

As an institution, we treasure the exchanges we have with many universities and we look forward to continuing this cooperation in the future. We are in discussions with our European partner universities regarding the establishment of bilateral student exchanges in the event that the UK is no longer permitted to participate in the Erasmus+ scheme.

We are closely monitoring this unprecedented situation and are maintaining regular contact with our National Agency (British Council). We are anticipating further guidance from the National Agency about the implications for incoming and outgoing student mobility in the coming days and weeks.

We will of course update you as soon as further information is available.

If you have any questions, please email our Erasmus team:
