Information about Brexit and Erasmus + programme

The United Kingdom has left the European Union with a withdrawal agreement the 31st of January of 2020, which entered into force on February the 1st. The transitional period will last until the 31st of December 2020. The withdrawal agreement provides for the participation of the United Kingdom in the current  Erasmus+ programme 2014-2020 until the end of the programme, which means that UK beneficiaries can continue to participate in the projects subsidized under the current Regulation until all activities are completed, even if it's after 2020. Therefore, all the activities and mobility of students, teachers and staff of the Erasmus + projects will not be interrupted in the current 2014-2020 framework of the Erasmus + programme.

From the 1st of January of 2021, the United Kingdom will be treated as a third country for the purposes of access to EU programs, including Erasmus+. The possible participation of the United Kingdom in future programmes after 2020 will depend on the result of the general negotiations about the future relationship between the European Union and the United Kingdom. However, the UK government has pledged to negotiate access to the next Erasmus+ programme 2021-2027.
