The United Kingdom effectively left the European Union on 31 January 2020. We are now in an 11-month transition period (which can be renewed once). During this time, the UK will be treated like a Mmeber State and continue to participate to EU programmes. The two parties will also need to use this time to work on defining their future relations.

What Impact for Students and Erasmus+ Projects?

The United Kingdom will continue to participate to the Erasmus+ programme until its end (i.e. 2021 for mobility projects).
The students planning to go for an internship or study stay in the UK will still be able to benefit from an Erasmus+ grant: 

  • during the 2nd term of  2019-2020 ;
  • during the academic year 2020-2021.

Post 2020-2021 : the participation of the UK to the Erasmus programme after 2021 will depend on the result of the negotiations on future relations between the UK and the European Union.

Residence Permit and Social Security

  • Until 31 December 2020 (or longer in case the transition period is extended): no change.
  • After 31 December 2020: the access to the British territory and the social security regulations will be regulated by the future agreements between the UK and the European Union. There is no further information on this topic at the moment.
