Brexit and the Transition Period

The UK left the EU on January 31st 2020, thereby entering a transition period where there were not many changes. The transition period will end on December 31st 2020, where rules will change.

About the Erasmus+ Programme

Erasmus+ aims to modernise education, training and youth work across Europe. It is open to education, training, youth and sport organisations across all sectors of lifelong learning, including school education, further and higher education, adult education and the youth sector. It offers exciting opportunities for UK participants to study, work, volunteer, teach and train abroad in Europe.

We, the UCL Study Abroad Team, apply for Erasmus+ funding, collate and record paperwork, process payments and report to our National Agency (the British Council) on behalf of UCL.

UCL Erasmus+ Mobility Projects

UCL is proud to have been granted in December 2013, participation rights within the Erasmus+ programme. This charter sets out a number of principles which participating organisations agree to uphold in operating the programme. You can learn more about the way UCL is implementing Erasmus+ by reading the Erasmus+ Charter for Higher Education and UCL's Erasmus+ Policy Statement.

Erasmus+ and Brexit

The Erasmus+ programme runs for seven years under the EU's Multiannual Financial Framewor, with the current due to end in 2020. The participation of the UK in the next programme is dependant on wider UK-EU negotiations.

The withdrawal agreement between the UK and the EU secures all approved funding for the current Erasmus+ programme until they expire. This means that there will be no changes to your Erasmus+ grant funding for your placement in the 2020/21 academic year. For information on the Erasmus programme after 2020/21, you can visit our Erasmus+ Future webpage.
