Brexit information for Erasmus+ students

Students from Glasgow planning to study at Erasmus partner institutions in 2020/21

The University of Glasgow will fully participate in the Erasmus Scheme in 2020/21 and until further notice.

UK and other nationals participating in, or about to participate in, the European Union’s Erasmus scheme will continue to be eligible for Erasmus grants. This will continue as normal until further notice.

UK nationals studying in another EU member state as part of the Erasmus Scheme will not require a visa to do so as your immigration status has not changed.

The UK has now entered a Brexit transition period due to end 31 December 2020, and will remain a full member of the Erasmus programme until June 2021. Funding will continue to be available for the duration of the Institutional grant in May 2022. The Go Abroad team will keep you informed of any changes in immigration requirements during or after the transition period.

Students from Erasmus partner institutions planning to study in Glasgow in 2020/21

The University of Glasgow will fully participate in the Erasmus Scheme in 2020/21 and until further notice.

If you are participating in, or about to participate in, the European Union’s Erasmus+ scheme, you will continue to be eligible for Erasmus grants. This will continue as normal until further notice.

If you are a national of an EU or EEA country, or Switzerland, you do not require a visa to study in the UK. You should travel to the UK using your EU/EEA/Swiss passport or national ID card and there will be no restriction on studying. Your immigration status as an EU national has not changed and will continue to apply as normal. This will remain the case until further notice.

Although the Brexit transition period ends on 31 December 2020, the UK will remain a full member of the Erasmus programme until June 2021, so you will be entitled to receive Erasmus+ funding from your home institution until then. This is a decision made by the National Agency in each EU country. Immigration requirements are also likely to change after the end of the transition period. Your Study Abroad/International Office team will keep you informed of any changes in funding and immigration requirements.


Equality & Diversity

Remember that different countries do not necessarily have the same laws and customs that you are familiar with in the UK. This includes protections under the Equality Act 2010.

If you identify with a protected characteristic group we advise you research the local laws, customs and support provision for minority groups. This includes if you have a disability, are LGBT or from a minority faith or ethnicity in your destination country.
