How will Brexit impact the Erasmus+ programme?

The EU and the UK have agreed to postpone the date of the withdrawal of the UK from the EU until 1 February 2020, unless a Withdrawal Agreement is ratified before that date, in which case the UK will withdraw on the first day of the month following that ratification.

If by the time of the UK’s withdrawal, the Withdrawal Agreement is signed and ratified, then the UK can continue to take part in the current Erasmus+ programme until the close of the programme.

Erasmus+ learning mobility activities

On 19 March 2019, the Council and Parliament adopted an Erasmus+ Contingency Regulation (COM/2019/499) to avoid the disruption of Erasmus+ learning mobility activities involving the United Kingdom in the event that the UK leaves the EU without a deal (“no-deal scenario”). You should note, however, that the Regulation only covers learning mobility starting before the withdrawal date.
