Students from the European Union will not be able to undertake exchange visits to the United Kingdom on the Erasmus mobility programme.

14/01/2021

The recent Brexit agreement has announced the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the new Erasmus + programme planned for 2021-2027. This decision brings an end to years of cooperation, although this will continue until the new mobility plan is in place. Exchange visits will continue within the current regulations until all deadlines are reached.

The offer of places will also continue along with the award of grants: 300 Euros per month of stay from the EU grant, and 200 euros per month from an additional grant awarded by the Ministry for Education and Professional Training for students from disadvantaged backgrounds.

The exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union also means its elimination of the border agreements with the Schengen Zone and the consequent limitation of movement between countries. From January 2021 a visa will be required for stays of 6 months or more. These conditions are set out in the British Government website.

European medical insurance continues to be valid but for annual stays an “immigration health surcharge” must be paid, together with the visa. For questions regarding insurance you are advised to contact the host university, since there may be regional differences within the United Kingdom.
