January 2021 update
The UK has left the EU.
Following negotiations with the EU, the UK has decided not to participate in the Erasmus exchange programme moving forward. Although new rules on trade, travel and business for the UK and the EU came into effect on 1 January 2021, DMU remains a full participant of the Erasmus+ programme until September 2022.
Students overseas in the 2020-21 academic year:
Our participation in the Erasmus+ programme remains unaffected, and thus there will be no impact on funding for 2020-21 participants despite the UK deciding not to participate in future Erasmus+ programmes.
DMU students who are currently participating in an Erasmus+ mobility will be unaffected and will continue to receive funding for the entire period of study or traineeship.
Students planning on going overseas in the 2021-22 academic year:
Students planning to study on exchange in Europe for the 2021-22 academic are still be eligible for Erasmus+ funding. Erasmus+ projects in the UK will continue to be funded by the European Commission as normal, with DMU students eligible to receive financial support up until September 2022.
However, students will need to consider the new immigration rules and ensure that entry requirements for studying in the host country are met (e.g. visas, permits etc). Further guidance to will be provided to students regarding this prior to their mobilities and more information about travelling to the EU post-Brexit is also available on the Government website.
Students planning on going overseas from September 2022 onwards:
The government have committed to funding a replacement for Erasmus+, the Turing Scheme, which will provide over £100million to fund around 35,000 students to go on overseas placements and exchanges. The programme will provide similar opportunities for students to study and work abroad as the Erasmus+ programme but it will include countries across the world.
Full details of this programme are still pending, but as soon as the scope of the new scheme is known, DMU Global will publish more information.
