University will protect Erasmus+

February 14th, 2019

The University of Nottingham is proud to have one of the largest Erasmus+ student mobility programmes in the UK. Our students are studying and working in 18 countries this year.

The UK government has assured universities that it is working on the basis of the UK remaining a participating country in the Erasmus+ programme after 29 March 2019. In the event of a ‘No Deal’ Brexit, the UK government has confirmed it will underwrite the UK’s participation in the 2018/19 academic year for European based student mobility.

The University believes that student mobility is essential and we will protect this experience, working with partners across the sector to lobby the government to continue funding for Erasmus+ beyond Brexit, not least through the UUK #SupportStudyAbroad campaign.

Given the importance of Erasmus+ to our students’ global outlook, in the potential absence of UK government funding beyond 2018/19, the University of Nottingham will continue to underwrite outgoing student mobility programmes to the EU and Erasmus+ partners for the next three years to 2021/22. Further details will be published later in the spring term with presentations to staff and students.
